Comparison of valence band XPS spectra of Cu samples with theoretical density of states shows a high intensity near the upper edge of the d-band. This is a feature common for most d-band metals. However, if the difference in the density of states of the first two atomic layers with respect to the bulk is taken into account, good agreement between theory and experiment is found.
