BAR XPS: For Studies of Industrially Relevant Catalytic Reactions

Scienta Omicron’s new high-pressure X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) system can perform studies under pressures exceeding 1 bar and control temperature up to 500 degrees Celsius.

Result of the Month (ROM), July 2020

In this study, Stühler, R., Reis, F., Müller, T. et al. explore the impact of electronic correlations on highly localized edge states of the unique quantum spin Hall material bismuthene on SiC(0001). Exploiting the advantage of having an accessible monolayer substrate system, they use STM/STS to visualize the close-to-perfect one-dimensional confinement of the edge channels and scrutinize their suppressed density of states at the Fermi level. Based on the observed spectral behavior and its universal scaling with energy and temperature, they demonstrate the correspondence with a (helical) Tomonaga–Luttinger liquid. The STM/STS measurements have been performed with a low-temperature STM from Scienta Omicron under UHV conditions.

Analyser Control Upgrades: Bringing your Electron Analyser up to the Highest Performance Level

Efficient and accurate communications between the Analyser and the software are critical for high performance measurements. The newest standard for this system uses Ethernet compatible hardware and software components. Upgrading these components will bring your Analyser Control system up to the highest performance level possible. We are offering a package discount for our current customers who would like to upgrade their systems.

Key features of the upgraded components include: A complete Windows 10 Solution for Analyser Control, Improved Signal Integrity, Most recent SES software version, Ethernet interface simplifies Rack add ons, and Future ready: PEAK Software Compatibility.
