We demonstrate that the electron density of the light-populated image potential states in graphite reaches its maximum when the photon energy of ultrashort laser pulses is resonant with the π−π* band gap at the M point of the Brillouin zone. This unexpected behavior, as shown by the nonlinear photoelectron spectroscopy data, is assisted by the onset of a strong light-induced interaction between the π bands and the image potential states. This finding suggests the possibility of exploring new photochemical processes at the graphite surface and related compounds.

Abstract

We demonstrate that the electron density of the light-populated image potential states in graphite reaches its maximum when the photon energy of ultrashort laser pulses is resonant with the π−π* band gap at the M point of the Brillouin zone. This unexpected behavior, as shown by the nonlinear photoelectron spectroscopy data, is assisted by the onset of a strong light-induced interaction between the π bands and the image potential states. This finding suggests the possibility of exploring new photochemical processes at the graphite surface and related compounds.
