U.K. center gets x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy unitBy AuntMinnieEurope.com staff writers
May 31, 2012 -- With the help of a 675,000 pound (841,000 euro) grant from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the University of Nottingham, U.K., will host the world's first liquid phase photoelectron spectroscopy (LiPPS) machine.
LiPPS is an x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) device that allows researchers to take atomistic measurements of the surface of liquids for the first time. Current instrumentation in the XPS field allows only for the analysis of solid substances.
LiPPS also is designed to deal with a wider range of sample types and to acquire data autonomously.
The university plans to open a new sector for the research community, generating new avenues for research and supporting training of early stage career researchers.
