29. The choice of 100 × 100 μm2 spot is a tradeoff of having a spot size similar to the experiment and not increasing too much the number of electrons entering the simulation, that will become time-consuming. For the analysis of the trends in kinetic energy shifts presented in the paper, the spot size is not influencing the conclusions: At bigger spot sizes similar shifts will be obtained for increased number of emitted electrons.

The beam emittance depends on the specific electronic structure of the material under investigation and is therefore photon energy dependent.38 A value 0.4 π mm mrad is about one order of magnitude bigger with respect to measured thermal emittances of Ag excited with a 211 nm laser. The distributions employed in the simulation are simplifications of the electronic structure. In particular, we decided to increase the emittance only of the slow electrons to keep the size of the simulation small.

Vacuum space charge induced kinetic energy shifts of O 1s and Ru 3d core levels in femtosecond soft X-ray photoemission spectra (PES) have been studied at a free electron laser (FEL) for an oxygen layer on Ru(0001). We fully reproduced the measurements by simulating the in-vacuum expansion of the photoelectrons and demonstrate the space charge contribution of the high-order harmonics in the FEL beam. Employing the same analysis for 400 nm pump-X-ray probe PES, we can disentangle the delay dependent Ru 3d energy shifts into effects induced by space charge and by lattice heating from the femtosecond pump pulse.
