Laboratory for Advanced Spectroscopy and X-ray Sources
In the Laboratory for Advanced Spectroscopy and X-ray Sources (LSX), we develop and apply advanced spectroscopic techniques for condensed materials and related scientific domains. We study electronic structure, low-energy excitations, correlation effects and ultra-fast dynamics in a broad range of complex material systems. We also develop world-leading undulator X-ray sources for Synchrotron and X-ray free electron laser providing beams of unprecedented quality in terms of brilliance, peak intensity and pulse length.
Latest Scientific Highlights and News
Soft X-rays enable scientists to visualise non-invasively the electronic properties of ultra-thin dopant layers buried within semiconductor wafers.
Researchers are identifying and studying material compounds whose unique properties could lead to the development of novel types of chip.
Off to new shores – a high-tech component is on its way from PSI to Australia by sea. In future, it will be deployed at the Australian Synchrotron in Melbourne.
