Scienta Omicron Provides Remote Services

Due to the COVID-19 situation, keeping systems operating and maintained can be difficult for laboratories around the world. Scienta Omicron aims to support all our customers, your instruments and your research as best as possible during this period.

Please Contact Us to discuss how we can deliver a Remote Support Session for you, and together we can work through this global crisis. 

Scienta Omicron's first DA20 analyser has been shipped! 

Scienta Omicron is happy to announce that the first DA20 has been shipped to our customer. During 2019 Scienta Omicron developed a new electron analyser for ARPES and XPS, the DA20. 

“Drawing upon the strengths of the DA30-L and its patented ground-breaking deflection technology, the DA20 received a completely new lens design that brings deflection capability to a new family of compact analysers. If you are looking to expand your research group’s capability with ARPES, the DA20 is an excellent choice,” says Scienta Omicron CEO Johan Åman. The new DA20 is designed not only to avoid sample rotation, but is also optimised for the measurement of photoelectrons with low kinetic energies, making it a great product for time resolved ARPES (tr-ARPES).

Scienta Omicron now looks forward to the successful installation and first results coming from our customer’s research group using the DA20.

HAXPES Lab Presentation

The HAXPES Lab is designed for high resolution XPS measurements with maximum intensity. The system configuration is constructed around Scienta Omicron's vast knowledge within the field of HAXPES.

Learn more about the HAXPES Lab from this video presentation by Dr. Marcus Lundwall and Dr. Susanna Eriksson. 

Scienta Omicron Virtual Conference 

Welcome to our Scienta Omicron Virtual Conference!

We were scheduled to attend both the APS, Denver, JSAP, Tokyo, and DPG, Dresden Conferences in March 2020, but unfortunately due to the COVID-19 outbreak these Conferences were cancelled. 

We have created this Virtual Conference to share information and start a conversation with you virtually, in the absense of the opportunity to talk face to face. 

Open Position: Product Manager Electron Spectroscopy

Are you looking for a new job opportunity or want to start your career in Surface Science and Material Physics? Scienta Omicron offers a great place to work with real opportunities to develop your career and reach your potential. We are now adding a new colleague to our Product Management team in Uppsala (Sweden) to work in a small group that works closely together and shares most of the tasks. If this position appeals to you, please send your application and CV to Dr. Marcus Lundwall.

Result of the Month, March 2020

The thermal reduction of Titanium oxides was observed in-situ by time-resolved XPS using a new type of multi peak monitoring allowing to observe several XPS lines in a timely manner. The color-coded maps show multiple XPS spectra over time where the x-axis represents the energy axis and y-axis the time. Intensity is shown from dark red (low count rate) to blue (high count rate). The oxygen reduction occurred within ~ 1 minute by applying a rapid temperature ramp and was found to be a step-wise process with an initial transition from 4+ to suboxide and the metallic state of Titanium at intermediate temperatures between 600 K and 725 K before further reduction of the 3+ oxidation state at temperatures > 725 K.

2020 MRS Spring Meeting

From April 13th, 2020 - Until April 17th, 2020 - CANCELLED

Time and time again, "multidisciplinary" research is touted as essential to innovation. That is why, from April 13-17, 2020, researchers working in seemingly unrelated fields will gather in Phoenix, Arizona, to promote, share and discuss issues and developments across disciplines.

NEVAC-dag 2020

From May 15th, 2020 - Until May 15th, 2020

The NEVAC Symposium 2020 is organized by the Advanced Research Center for Nanolithography (ARCNL). We offer an attractive program of lectures, posters, exhibition, the NEVAC Annual Meeting and lab tour of ARCNL. As usual the symposium is free of charge for members of the NEVAC.
