Abstract : This report summarizes a joint project by the University of California and the Naval Weapons Center, funded through Contract N00014-79-C-0855 from the Office of Naval Research (ONR). The project was supported from September 1979 to October 1981 by ONR, and concerned a newly discovered surface science technique, Photon Stimulated Ion Desorption (PSID). The goals in the project were of two types: (1) performance of experiments using existing and borrowed equipment and (2) developement of a time-of-flight angle resolved PSID spectrometer. The report will include a brief description of PSID, a description of experiments performed, and status of the apparatus under construction. (Author)
