Custom UHV System XANELS XPS Soft X Ray Modules




UHV System Description

Customised multi-chamber UHV system which operates both a soft x-ray end-station at the National Synchrotron Radiation Research Centre (NSRRC) of Taiwan (to support Australian soft x-ray research) and at the Australian Synchotron. One forte of this system is the ability to handle volatile samples throughout the entire system by cooling to liquid nitrogen temperatures. This feature is particularly useful in the study of volatile mineral samples, and was a major design goal for the system.

Specification
Multi-user XANELS and XPS facility with the following main features:


  • High throughput photoemission energy analyzer <5 meV resolution
  • NEXAFS detector (partial electron yield and total fluorescence yield)
  • Sample cooling to 120K (using LN2) or ~40K (using LHe)
  • Flood gun and dual-anode x-ray source
  • Ability to transfer samples at 120K
  • Rotary distribution chamber allows sample transfer to 8 chambers
  • Fast sample entry load-lock with glove-box
  • Sample fracture chamber and sample parking chamber
  • Preparation chamber for sputtering, evaporation etc.
  • Ability to be upgraded via add-on chambers using spare-ports
  • Motorised sample manipulators and user friendly control system
  • Support frame with a large range of adjustment, to allow SXSI to be mounted on the complete range of NSRRC soft X-ray beamlines, and on the Australian Synchrotron
