Materials Science Beamline and its users

The Materials Science Beamline attracts a heterogeneous group of researchers affiliated with national and international research centers and universities.  Users submitting a proposal for the first time are warmly invited to browse our publication list, in order develop a clear view on the typical applications of our beamline. To find more about capability of MSB for various methods, please, visit also description of the beamline and the specifications.


Research fields

Research takes place in fields related to surface physics and chemistry, materials science, catalysis, and biomolecules. The high surface sensitivity of photoemission spectroscopy with kinetic energy of electrons in the range 50-100 eV is the ideal for investigation of the physical properties of systems with low dimensionality, such as ultra-thin epitaxial films (of a thickness of a few atomic layers) and a wide range of nanostructures at surfaces and interfaces.  Selected examples MSB results can be found in our Highlights section.
