Have you ever looked back over the history of our field? We have, and it is very interesting! Since our founder Professor Kai Siegbahn’s 1981 Nobel Prize in Physics for his contribution to the development of high-resolution electron spectroscopy, there have been many other outstanding successes in this field, including the work of Professor John C. Polanyi.

During 2019 Scienta Omicron developed and released a new electron analyser for ARPES and XPS, the DA20. The new DA20 is designed not only to avoid sample rotation, but is also optimised for the measurement of photoelectrons with low kinetic energies, making it a great product for time resolved ARPES (tr-ARPES).
