In order to satisfy demands to study the electronic structure of quantum nanostructures, a VUV beamline and a highresolution and high-throughput photoemission end-station combined with a molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) system have been constructed at the BL-IC of the Photon Factory. An angle-resolved photoemission spectrometer, having high energy- and angular-resolutions; VG Microtech ARUPS10, was installed. The total energy resolution of 31 meV at the 60eV of photon energy is achieved. For the automated angle-scanning photoemission, the electron spectrometer mounted on a two-axis goniometer can be rotated in vacuum by the computer-controlled stepping motors. Another distinctive feature of this end-station is a connection to a MBE chamber in ultahigh vacuum (UHV). In this system, MBE-grown samples can be transferred into the photoemission chamber without breaking UHV. Photoemission spectra of MBE-grown GaAs(00 1) surfaces were measured with high-resolution and bulk and surface components are clearly resolved,
