Systematic and Collaborative Approach to Problem Solving using X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy

Collaborators from the UK, France, Germany, Canada, Denmark and the USA – including our technical manager, Dr David Morgan – have published a recent article in Applied Surface Science Advances [1], highlighting the methodology developed from many years of interaction between junior and senior X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) practitioners using […]

Photoemission of Solvated Electrons

Buttersack et al. have recently published what seems to be the first photoemission experiments on solvated electrons.1 Solvated electrons occur when group 1 metals are dissolved in certain solvents, the most popular is liquid ammonia. Once a standard undergraduate chemistry experiment, dropping a lump of sodium into liquid NH3, cooled […]
