Thought for the month

“You know," said Arthur, "it's at times like this, when I'm trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space that I really wish I'd listened to what my mother told me when I was young." "Why, what did she tell you?" "I don't know, I didn't listen.” From The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams, Author (1952-2001)

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.
