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.

Identifications and Electronic Characterizations of Four Cyclodehydrogenation Products of H2TPP Molecules on Au(111)
C–H bond activation and dehydrogenative coupling reactions have always been significant approaches to construct microscopic nanostructures on surfaces. By using scanning tunneling microscopy/spectroscopy (STM/STS) and non-contact atomic force microscopy (nc-AFM) combined with density functional theory (DFT), we systematically characterized the atomically precise topographies and electronic properties of H2TPP cyclodehydrogenation products on Au(111). Through surface-assisted thermal excitation, four types of cyclodehydrogenation products were obtained and clearly resolved in the nc-AFM images.
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.
Secret Behind One of the World’s Toughest Materials
A team of scientists led by Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore) and Rice University in the US, has uncovered the key to the outstanding toughness of hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN). It can withstand ten times the amount of force that graphene can, which is known as one of the toughest materials on Earth.
