MAX IV hosted the 6th Annual Ambient pressure X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (APX-PS) Workshop from 10-13 December, 2019. Over 100 researchers working in the fields of catalysis, electrochemistry, and environmental science met to discuss the newest developments and applications in ambient pressure XPS.
Understanding chemical processes, such as catalysis, at the atomic level is a complex endeavour. It requires a thorough experimental design, which spans from choosing and developing the right model, to using the best instrument to perform controlled and advanced analysis. The latter aspect is where MAX IV comes into play with its state-of-the-art beamlines.
