Abstract : Recent progress in vacuum ultra-violet instrumentation and techniques useful to solid state physics is described, although much of the instrumentation advances are also of use to other V-uv studies. Improvements in sources, detectors, and dispersive systems (particularly in grating reflectivities) are noted. While commercial instrumentation is not described, it is perhaps in this area that the most striking instrumental progress has come. Besides optical studies, work on internal and external photoemission continues to augment the optical work. Interest in luminescent systems is also still useful as indicating something about the energy band scheme in insulating solids. An important advance is noted wherein use is made of laser radiation in conjunction with ultra-violet radiation in a double photon absorption process in KI. (Author)
