Soft X-rays enable scientists to visualise non-invasively the electronic properties of ultra-thin dopant layers buried within semiconductor wafers.
Christian Wäckerlin talks about fundamental research into novel nanowires and their potential applications.
Once the vacuum chambers for the SLS 2.0 upgrade are the right shape, they still need a special surface coating.
The most complicated vacuum chambers for the SLS 2.0 upgrade are being built in the PSI workshop.
On June 7, 2023, the PXIII project team successfully shone the first light into the optics hutch at the upgraded X06DA-PXIII beamline. It is an essential first step for testing new hardware and software solutions that will be implemented at SLS2.0.
Short flashes of an unusual kind of X-ray light at SwissFEL and SLS bring scientists closer to developing better catalysts to transform the greenhouse gas methane into a less harmful chemical.
