We have developed an ultrahigh-resolution spin-resolved photoemission spectrometer with a highly efficient mini Mott detector and an intense xenon plasma discharge lamp. The spectrometer achieves the energy resolutions of 0.9 and 8 meV for non-spin-resolved and spin-resolved modes, respectively. Three-dimensional spin-polarization is determined by using a 90° electron deflector situated before the Mott detector. The performance of spectrometer is demonstrated by observation of a clear Rashba splitting of the Bi(111) surface states.

We use an effective Sherman function value of Seff=0.1, which is a typical value for various mini Mott detectors with the electron acceleration energy of 25 kV (Refs. 3 and 4).
