Our new (refurbished) PHI 5400 XPS has arrived from RBD Instruments! The monochromatic XPS will be attached to our MBE in May during installation and complete our laboratory construction. We will be the only university in the United States with a combination of hybrid oxide molecular beam epitaxy and in situ x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The system is also capable of ion scattering spectroscopy for surface termination measurements using He+ ions. Look for exciting new results from our system soon!
