A brief overview of ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy (UPS) and related techniques is given. This technique measures the occupied electronic states in solids and at surfaces. In its angle-resolved version, it provides the complete information about electrons in solids. After discussing the underlying physics, a variety of applications in materials science are illustrated. Practical questions are addressed as well.
