High pressure x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy

On this page I have gathered some information on the High pressure x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (HP-XPS) project.
HP-XPS at MAX-lab:
  • I sign responsible for the HP-XPS system that has been built up at MAX-lab at beamline I511.
  • The system is described in J. Synchrotron Rad. 19 (2012) 701.
  • The system was built by SPECS GmbH.
  • The end station is in regular user operation and external users can apply for beamtime.
Funding:
  • The Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation funded the design and construction of the HP-XPS instrument at MAX-lab with 9,500,000 SEK (2006 - 2010).
  • The Swedish Research Council funded a junior researcher position aimed at building up a HP-XPS instrument (2005 - 2009).
  • The Science Faculty at Lund University has funded a project "High pressure XPS for natural scientists" which aims at making the HP-XPS instrument at MAX-lab available for natural scientists from fields other than physics and at building new collaborations across the institute borders (140,000 SEK, 2009).
HP-XPS at MAX IV:
  • I am the spokesperson and one of the two project managers (the other one is Jan Knudsen) for the HIPPIE beamline at the new MAX IV facility. at beamline I511.
Funding:
  • The HIPPIE beamline is funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation and consortium of Swedish Universities.
  • The HIPPIE beamline has a budget of 70 MSEK.
Documentation:
  • In conjunction with the project "High pressure XPS for natural scientists" funded by the Science Faculty I have given a number of seminars at different divisions of the Faculty (and will hopefully give more). I summarise the conlusions from the meetings in the document Högtrycks-XPS för naturvetare sammanfattning.pdf (in Swedish).
