RTA Instruments covers all the angles at the University of Southampton
The School of Electronics and Computer Science has completed the purchase of a Theta Probe XPS system, from our partner Thermo Fisher Scientific. Patented Theta Probe technology provides the unique ability to collect angle-resolved XPS spectra over a 60° angular range, in parallel, without tilting the sample and allows the instrument to characterize ultra-thin films non-destructively (more on Theta Probe). The system will be installed in the Nanofabrication Centre (www.southampton-nanofab.com/) later this year.
