Scienta Omicron would like to congratulate Takahiro Hashimoto on his recent PhD graduation in Science from the University of Tokyo. Prior to completion of his PhD, Takahiro Hashimoto participated in an internship at Scienta Omicron, in Uppsala, Sweden between 2018-2019. It was an honor for us to host Takahiro Hashimoto, from the world leading research group at The Graduate School of Frontier Sciences, at The University of Tokyo. We look forward to welcoming Takahiro Hashimoto back onto the Scienta Omicron team towards the end of 2020.

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).
