A time-of-flight (TOF) photoemission electron energy analyzer includes a TOF spectrometer for measuring an energy spectrum of a beam of electrons photoemitted from a sample and a 90 degree bend bandpass filter for spatially dispersing and filtering electrons according to energy. An exchange scattering electron spin polarimeter for detecting the spin of electrons includes an entrance aperture for admitting an electron beam, a magnetizable target positionable for receiving the electron beam at an angle relative to a target surface normal vector, a pair of Helmholtz coils positioned about the target for magnetizing the target in a selected direction, and a high-speed multi-channel plate (MCP) detector facing toward the target for receiving electrons reflected from the target surface, the MCP outputting a signal corresponding to the spin dependent intensity and time of electrons' arrivals.
