PTC Seminar hosted by Dr Paramaconi B. Rodriguez

X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) is a powerful ultra-high vacuum technique capable of probing the elemental composition and surface chemistry of materials. Originally founded in fundamental surface science, the technique has gained popularity in a variety of different fields, leading to over 9000 publications in 2015 alone. Here we highlight just a few of the branches of modern science to which XPS has been applied at the Warwick Photoemission Facility [1], ranging from nanoparticles and semiconductors to drug molecules and biocatalysis via a series of interesting case studies. The presentation will also highlight the equipment portfolio of the Facility and outline how to access the instruments.
