Current status of the beamline

Beamline saw first light April 2019 and is under active commissioning. First expert users are scheduled for Q3 2019.

First user call for SPECIES-APXPS will open on August 22, 2019, for beamtime period March 2020 – August 2020.

Current status of APXPS endstation

Standard ambient pressure cell (catalysis, oxidation studies, etc.) is available and currently two gases can be used simultaneously. The ambient pressure cell is equipped with two independent gas inlets and one common gas outlet for pumping. Limited gas mixing can be achieved upon user request.

Experimental methods available: XPS, AES, NEXAFS (partial electron yield mode) of surfaces, surface-vapor interface, surface-liquid interface etc.

Current status of RIXS endstation

Experimental methods available: High resolution RIXS (and NEXAFS) of solids, liquids, vapors, and gases.

Endstation under construction/commissioning.
