The In Situ Spectroscopy beamline offers the possibility to perform ambient pressure x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (APXPS) and near edge x-ray absorption fine structure (APNEXAFS) spectroscopy measurements. The photon energy range available (350-1500 eV) allows to reach a maximum pressure of approximately 5 mbar in the cell during in situ experiments.
The research at the In Situ Spectroscopy beamline is focused on the in situ characterization of solid-gas and solid-liquid interfaces. The solid-gas interface endstation, opened to external users, offers the possibility to investigate samples relevant for catalysis, environmental chemistry and electrochemistry. The system is versatile and other type of experiments can be planned according to the specific needs of users. Beamtime proposals can be prediscussed with the responsible scientist (Dr. Luca Artiglia). The solid-liquid interface endstation has been fully commissioned in 2019 and is open to external users upon discussion with the responsible sceintist (Dr. Zbynek Novotny).
