PEEM Lab: The System Platform for Photoemission Microscopy
The PEEM Lab is a UHV system with a small foot-print tailored for the needs of daily PEEM work. It provides ports for various excitation sources, evaporators, sputter cleaning source and sample heating. In addition the system is also designed to house a dedicated LHe cooled 4 axis sample stage for PEEM operation below 30 K.
POLAR SPM Lab: Low Temperature SPM with Unsurpassed Hold Time
Many of today’s Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) applications require extremely low noise for detection of very small (<500 fA) tunneling currents (e.g. STS or molecular imaging). In the Scienta Omicron POLAR SPM Lab, ex-situ signal amplifiers for both Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM) and QPlus® Atomic Force Microscopy (QPlus® AFM), combined with dedicated wiring, result in maximum experimental flexibility and the highest achievable signal to noise ratio.
New Product: PEAK
Electron Spectroscopy Control and Acquisition Software
PEAK is designed to control acquisition of photoelectron spectra with Scienta Omicron analysers. With its modern software architecture, PEAK offers improved performance for data acquisition, workflow, and live visualisation of data. The modular design and the modern network-based application programming interface (API) facilitate integration of additional equipment as well as full integration of the analyser in external control systems.

Energy Funnelling within Multichromophore Architectures Monitored with Subnanometre Resolution
In this work, Guillaume Schull, Fabrice Scheurer et al. have used luminescence induced by scanning tunnelling microscopy to probe model multichromophoric structures assembled on a surface. Mimicking strategies developed by photosynthetic systems, individual molecules were used as ancillary, passive or blocking elements to promote and direct resonant energy transfer between distant donor and acceptor units. As it relies on organic chromophores as the elementary components, this approach constitutes a powerful model to address fundamental physical processes at play in natural light-harvesting complexes. The STM data were acquired with a LT STM (4.5 K) Scienta Omicron set-up that operated in a ultrahigh vacuum, and was configured to detect the light emitted at the tip–sample junction.
A Versatile UHV Module for Sample Preparation and SPM
The Multiprobe prep is the latest addition to Scienta Omicron’s range of modular UHV system platforms. It serves as both a preparation chamber for a wide range of analytical systems, and as an independent UHV system compatible with the addition of the award-winning Variable Temperature SPM (model VT SPM-XA) housed in its own bolt-on chamber.
Scienta Omicron Newsflyer Spring 2021
The Spring 2021 edition of the Scienta Omicron Newsflyer provides you with an update on Scienta Omicron during the challenging year (2020) with a pandemic COVID-19, updated product offerings to suit our customers´ research needs, a selection of high impact results acquired using Scienta Omicron instruments and systems, and highlight the work of our customers that are contributing to the field of surface science and nanotechnology.
MATRIX Remote Coarse Motion Control Upgrade
It is Scienta Omicron’s goal to make our products as practical and user friendly as possible. This package upgrades our legacy MATRIX V1 & V2 Hardware versions to incorporate the Remotely Controllable features of our modern MATRIX 4 Units. The modern MATRIX GUI is remotely controllable from anywhere in the world via the internet, meaning that researchers can control and change the tip location on the surface of the sample without stepping foot in the laboratory.
