Ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy has come of age. UPS can take its place beside its older, better-known sister, ESCA (or XPS) as a surface sensitive method which has become more useful in learning certain specific things about interfaces at distances significantly larger than the typical electron elastic mean-free-paths dictated by the photon energies employed, In particular, the emergence of UPS as a real tool for interfacial studies has been applications driven, evolving after needs within polymer-based electronics applications. The situation is clarified through the use of several examples, drawn from the applications-spectroscopy literature. (C) 2001 Published by Elsevier Science B.V.
