An ultraviolet photoelectron spectrometer for the study of free atoms and molecules has been designed and fabricated with indigeneous components. The spectrometer consists of a 100 mA HeI discharge lamp, 180° hemispherical electron energy analyser (127 mm mean dia) and electron multiplier ratemeter electron detection systems. The resolution of the spectrometer is 90 meV/and the intensity of N2 (5σ) band is 105 c/sec. The sample inlet and the collision chamber can be heated to 500 K so that solids of low vapour pressure can be studied. Typical spectra of molecules recorded with the instrument are shown.
