 nanolab 1

Research modular platform Nanolab consists of several interconnected ultrahigh vacuum modules, including:

Spectrometer ESCALAB 250Xi is considered as the modern complex of electron spectroscopic equipment that can solve most of the modern diagnostic-type tasks of the synthesized organic and inorganic materials.

The spectrometer is based on a hemispherical energy analyzer with a double focusing and with energy range 0-5000 eV and includes monochromatic microfocus X-ray source of the latest generation, the ion profiling system, system of high-precision imaging of sample, manipulator with five degrees of freedom and chambers for loading and preliminary preparing of samples.
