Scienta Omicron family is glad to welcome Dr Peter Amann taking charge of the Product Management of our APPES and HAXPES product portfolios. Peter has most recently been a researcher at Stockholm University where his interest focused on the fundamental understanding of catalysis and instrument development towards this aim. In particular, he focused on investigating the reduction of CO and CO2 towards higher alcohols and commodities under near-realistic conditions. As the inventor and designer of the Bar-XPS system, Peter brings great experience to this position and to Scienta Omicron. Welcome aboard Peter!
