New XPS to be installed in MCL

A new Thermo Scientific ESCALAB 250Xi X-ray photoelectron spectrometer (XPS) has been purchased and is due to be installed in the MCL in November, 2013. This instrument greatly enhances the surface science capabilities of the MCL, having capabilities for high speed spectroscopic imaging and element mapping, angle-resolved XPS, ARPES, ion scattering spectroscopy, high resolution depth profiling, ultra-volet photoelectron spectroscopy (UPS), reflected electron energy loss spectroscopy (REELS), and high temperature/gas dosing capabilities.
