The objective of all surface electron spectroscopic techniques is to illucidate the nature of the surface and surface-adsorbate bond by probing the electronic states of the systems. All spectroscopies sample the system by measuring the response to an incident probe, yet the desired information is usually the ground state of the system. This paper will discuss and compare several types of spectroscopies: photoemission, photoadsorption or electron loss. Auger spectroscopy and inverse photoemission. The adsorption of CO will be used as the model system because much data exists for gas-phase CO, carbonyls and adsorbed CO.
