Current status of the beamline

Beamline is expected to start commissioning with synchrotron light in April/May 2019. First expert users are expected Q2 2019

When a SPECIES User Call is issued, information will be available here.

Current status of APXPS endstation

General purpose ambient pressure cells (catalysis, oxidation studies, etc.) are available. Currently two gases can be used simultaneously. The ambient pressure cells are 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, 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.
