Angle-Resolved Photoelectron Spectroscopy (ARPES) has emerged as the most powerful technique to understand the electronic structure of materials and what can influence their physics and chemistry. The ARPES Lab is designed to maximize the advantages gained from the revolutionary DA30-L hemispherical high-resolution analyser with its patented in-lens deflector.

Latest News

Scienta Omicron Technology

Scienta Omicron SPM and the Sigma Surface Science SPM and XPS businesses are merging into one new business unit under the roof of Scienta Omicron.

Result of the Month, Jan. 2020

Kimura K. et al report a single-molecule investigation of electroluminescence using a scanning tunnelling microscope and demonstrate a simple method of selective formation of T1 excitons that utilizes a charged molecule. All experiments were conducted using a LT STM operating at 4.7 K under ultrahigh vacuum.

Scienta Omicron Newsflyer Fall 2019

This edition of the News provides an update on Scienta Omicron´s Global Service Meeting (GSM) held in September 2019, bringing more than 25 service personnel from around the globe. Furthermore, it includes information on the installation of a new NanoESCA for momentum microscopy and imaging XPS at MPI Stuttgart, and a HAXPES Lab at Meiji University, Tokyo, by Prof. A. Ogura to perform HAXPES measurements directly in their laboratory; specific analysis of quantum jamming transition using Scienta Omicron LT Nanoprobe; a glimpse on ARPES manipulators and 1 BAR XPS; a step-by-step analysis through sub-molecular imaging using the LT STM; ARPES Lab results on disordered TMDCs; and a quick glance on Gas Reaction Cell GRC 1300.

Upcoming Conferences

47th Conference on the Physics and Chemistry of Surfaces and Interfaces

From January 19th, 2020 - Until January 23rd, 2020

The annual PCSI conference is devoted to achieve a fundamental understanding of the physical, chemical, biological, structural, optical, magnetic and electrical properties of surfaces and interfaces. These studies include novel growth processes and interfacial phenomena, new characterization tools, transport, and functionality of the structures for future devices. Generous amounts of discussion time will be included in the program in order to emphasize the workshop character and to stimulate the exchange of new ideas.

Physics@Veldhoven 2020

From January 21st, 2020 - Until January 22nd, 2020

Physics@Veldhoven takes place each year in January. It is a large congress that provides a topical overview of physics in the Netherlands. Traditionally, young researchers are given the chance to present themselves and their work alongside renowned names from the Dutch and international physics community. The programme covers Light and matter, Atomic, molecular and optical physics, Nanoscience and nanotechnology, Statistical physics and Soft condensed matter, Surfaces and interfaces, Physics of fluids, Subatomic physics, Plasma and fusion physics, and Strongly correlated systems.
