HAXPES at PETRA III: electronic structure, operando devices and in-situ catalysis

Tue 10 Mar, at 14:30 - Fermi room

In September 2018, a new X-ray undulator beamline (P22), fully dedicated to hard X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (HAXPES) techniques, opened to users. This beamline has been designed to the specific needs of the HAXPES user community [1,2]. Adaptive beam focusing is realized by Be compound refractive lenses and/or horizontally deflecting mirrors down to a spot size of ~15x17 µm^2 with a flux of up to 1.1x10^13 ph/s (for Si(111) at 6 keV). P22 hosts four specialised experimental end stations for high-resolution studies of the electronic and chemical structure of complex materials, realistic device-like structures and catalytic interfaces. The main instrument for conventional HAXPES techniques offers sample cooling and in-situ electrical characterisation for operando studies. A separate instrument provides full-field, sub- m electron spectro-microscopy (HAXPEEM). Additionally, a specialized setup for high-pressure HAXPES applications (POLARIS) recently demonstrated its capabilities at pressures >2.0 bar.[3] Finally, a full-field k-microscope with time-of-flight energy discrimination delivered first fully k-resolved valence band structures in the HAXPES energy range (up to 7 keV).[4-6] All instruments are implemented and operated in close collaboration with external user groups and as such reflect the wide range of scientific fields currently covered by our community. Following a short presentation of the beamline capabilities I will highlight recent results from the instruments operated at P22.
