We are excited to jointly announce with the Henry Royce Institute, the University of Manchester, the National Physical Laboratory, and the University of Southern Denmark, the acceptance of their first HAXPES Lab Paper ‘Inelastic background modelling applied to Hard X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy of deeply buried layers: a comparison of synchrotron and lab-based (9.25 keV) measurements’. This paper has been published in Applied Surface Science and represents an important milestone in the establishment of the Hard X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (HAXPES) research methodology.
