DFS30: Stay Focused, Save Time

The DFS30 analyser features ground-breaking Electrostatic 3D Focus Adjustment technology - a major advancement in replacing imprecise mechanical movements with electronic precision and repeatability. This provides significantly improved workflow, speed, and reproducibility when optimizing experimental conditions. High quality ARPES measurements, particularly micro/nanoARPES, require optimised alignment of the photon spot, sample, and analyser focal point. The DFS30 simplifies this alignment with electronic adjustment of the analyser focal point in X, Y and Z (working distance) to the photoelectron emission spot.

Scienta Omicron Newsflyer Fall 2021

Welcome to the Scienta Omicron Newsflyer for Fall 2021. 40 years ago in 1981, our co-founder Prof. Kai Siegbahn was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for developing the method of Electron Spectroscopy for chemical analysis (ESCA/XPS) – thereby creating the starting point for Scienta. Since then, the technology has been extended to incorporate Molecular Beam Epitaxy, Thin Film Deposition, Scanning Probe Microscopy Systems and a wide range of components. Keeping our tradition of pioneering and leading Surface Science and Nanotechnology innovation, Scienta Omicron is excited to release the revolutionary DFS30 analyser – a ground-breaking and patent pending Electrostatic 3D Focus Adjustment technology. We are also launching our new CREATE Platform – a configurable platform delivering your unique UHV Systems. Download to read more news articles from us.

New Materials Innovation Platform (MIP) for Epitaxial Growth and In-situ Analysis of 2D Semiconductors

Scienta Omicron has recently delivered a new Materials Innovation Platform (MIP) for epitaxial growth and in-situ analysis of 2D semiconductors (EPI2SEM) at the University of Nottingham. The new Ultra-High Vacuum (UHV) MIP combines a PRO-75 MBE for thin-film synthesis, a NanoESCA module for band structure and chemical analysis, and a Multiprobe Prep module with VT SPM for surface morphology studies. All modules are interconnected by a Linear Transfer Line (LTL).

A New Platform for Controlled Design of Printed Electronics with 2D Materials

A team of scientists have shown how electricity is transported in printed 2D materials, paving the way for design of flexible devices for healthcare and beyond. They identify what properties of 2D material films need to be tweaked to make electronic devices to order, allowing rational design of a new class of high-performance printed and flexible electronics. Lead researcher Dr Felice Torrisi, from the Department of Chemistry at Imperial College London, says: “Our results have a huge impact on the way we understand the transport through networks of two-dimensional materials.”

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.

Band-Selective Holstein Polaron in Luttinger Liquid Material A0.3MoO3 (A = K, Rb)

In this work, Y. L. Chen & L. X. Yang et al. study molybdenum blue bronze A0.3MoO3 (A = K, Rb) using laser-based angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (laser-based ARPES). Their experiment suggests that the normal phase of A0.3MoO3 is a prototypical Luttinger liquid, from which the charge-density-wave emerges with decreasing temperature. Prominently, they observe strong renormalizations of band dispersions, which are recognized as the spectral function of Holstein polaron derived from band-selective electron-phonon coupling in the system. Laser-based ARPES measurements were performed using DA30-L analyzers from Scienta Omicron.

MATRIX Programming Training

MATRIX offers powerful capabilities with its rich programming interface. Though MATRIX’s functionality is well documented, even experienced programmers may appreciate support to explore the aspects and procedures of the software that are less obvious. This course is intended for people already experienced in using MATRIX with at least basic programming skills who want to take their SPM to new heights.
