Abstract: An eccentric valve has a drive mechanism, a drive force receiving part, a bearing for supporting a rotary shaft, and a return spring for generating a return spring force. During non-operation of the drive mechanism, the eccentric valve generates a separating-direction urging force to cause the rotary shaft to incline about the bearing serving as a fulcrum and urge the valve element in a direction away from the valve seal, the separating-direction urging force being a force caused by the return spring force. Either the valve element or the valve seat is provided with a sealing member to seal between the valve element and the valve seat during non-operation of the drive mechanism.

Abstract: Electrons excited by irradiation of a visible light to a sample is at an energy level lower than a vacuum level, thus photoelectrons are not emitted from the sample and energy of excited electrons cannot be measured. The visible light is irradiated to the sample through a mesh electrode. A surface film for reducing the vacuum level is formed on a surface of the sample. With the surface film being formed, photoelectrons are obtained by the visible light, and these photoelectrons are accelerated by the mesh electrode toward a photoelectron spectrometer. Ultraviolet light may be irradiated to the sample and metal having same potential therewith. In this case, the mesh electrode is set at a retracted position to prohibit interaction of the mesh electrode and the ultraviolet light. A difference between the valence band and the Fermi level of the sample can be measured.
