The effect of surface imperfections on the angle-resolved photoemission spectra of planar and stepped (100) surfaces of TiO2 and SrTiO 3 have been measured. Normal emission data, analysed using the direct transition model, are compared with a calculated ab initio bulk band structure for the Gamma - Delta -X direction of rutile TiO2 and a published band structure calculation for the Gamma -X direction of SrTiO3. Selection rules are used to identify the symmetry of bands and resolve the rather broad spectral features. There is a close correlation between theory and experiment. The results for the stepped surfaces are little different to the planar surface data.
