Abstract : The field of high-temperature photoelectron spectroscopy is a very undeveloped area of research. The authors have constructed a specially-designed high-temperature, laser-heated, photoelectron spectrometer. This instrument has been tested and has been found to function quite effectively up to temperatures of over 1500C. The spectra of numerous high-temperature vapors of solid inorganic compounds have been measured. The information available from the spectra will provide considerable experimental data and theoretical insight regarding the stabilities, structures, geometries, electronic configurations, and chemical properties of high-temperature vapor species.
