Diamond Light Source will shortly start user operations with one of the first beamlines being the Nanoscience beamline. This beamline houses a state-of-the-art PhotoEmission Electron Microscope (PEEM) with a resolution of less than 20nm, allowing spatially resolved X-ray absorption spectroscopy, X-ray photoemission spectroscopy and X-Ray Magnetic Circular and Linear Dichroism. The beamline covers the energy range 80eV to 2100eV with circular and variable linear polarisation, making it ideal to study nanomagnetism, surface catalysis, interface electronic structure and interface chemical structure.
This one and a half day workshop was designed to give a general audience an idea of the wide ranging capabilities of the Nanoscience beamline, with talks and discussions on interface magnetism, geological science, surface chemistry and the principles of X-Ray excited PEEM. This workshop was co-sponsored by the IoP Thin Films and Surfaces Group.
