UCL XPS Facility

Instrument 1

Thermo K-Alpha

The K-Alpha is a high throughput monochromated XPS system capable of highly automated data acquisition.

Instrument 2

Theta Probe

The Theta Probe combines several techniques in one platform. XPS (Al k-alpha) UPS (He I and II) Reflected Electron Energy Loss (REELS) and He Ion Scattering Spectroscopy (ISS). It is capable of in situ sample heating and cooling. It uses the Avantage software package, allowing full automation of experiments.
