GasPhase Beamline

The Gas Phase Photoemission (GAPH) beamline is the only one at Elettra specifically devoted to research on gaseous systems.
GAPH offers a multi-technique approach for investigation of electronic properties of free atoms, molecules and clusters in the photon energy range 13-900 eV.

The broad energy range, the high resolving power and flux together with the purpose built end-stations, make this facility ideal for investigating the spectroscopy and dynamics of basic processes like inner-shell and multiple excitations and ionisation, as well as for characterising key processes relevant to several areas of science and technology (for example atmospheric chemistry, material science and biomedical sciences).

GAPH is one of the possible CERIC instruments:
CERIC-ERIC, the European Distributed Research Infrastructure, offers more than 40 different and complementary state of art techniques, distributed in 7 different coutries. A detailed description of also other facilities available in CERIC can be found here.
CERIC allows a wide range of methods for sample preparation and analysis in a flexible and project oriented way, through the submission of multitechnique proposals through a single entry point.


User Area

Proposal Sumission

We invite users and collaborators to discuss their proposals with the beamline local contacts well in advance before the submission deadline. This is crucial for a careful assesment of the experiment feasibility and may lead to improvements in the proposed experimental plan. Our website provides a wealth of informaiton on experiment feasibilty and proposal submission. For more info, please vist the user info section.

Call for proposals

Next deadline for proposal submission at link:  Elettra_DL  and : CERIC_DL 

 All proposals requiring use of the laser will be performed at the branch line.
