In this chapter, a general introduction of the typical ARPES systems will be given and the performance of the aforementioned laser-based ARPES systems will be described. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2016 J. 1 Constituents of a Typical ARPES System Angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) system is a powerful experimental tool to study the electronic structures in the materials with exotic physical phenomena. As described in the last chapter, the ARPES measurements are based on the photoemission process.
