A time- and angle-resolved photoelectron spectrometer based on an amplified picosecond Nd:glass laser system is described. The kinetic energy of photoemitted electrons, excited by 0.4 ps laser pulses at 264 nm, is measured with a time-of-flight electron energy analyzer. A theoretical model that takes into account the electron drift inside the mu -metal shielded tube as far as the electron analyzer has been introduced to calculate the energy distribution curves of photoelectrons. As a test of the experimental apparatus we present photoemission spectra of cesiated silver excited with 4.7 eV photons. Good agreement between the experimental and the calculated distribution curves of photoemitted electrons has been found. Finally, we have briefly discussed the electronic properties of silver in terms of free electron and d-band transitions, together with Auger processes for photon energies near 4 eV.
