SLS Environmental Cell

We develop X-ray excited electron spectroscopy for atmospheric research at the Swiss Light Source. The approach combines our know-how in dosing and detecting atmospheric trace gases and Near Ambient Pressure photoemission and X-ray absorption. With this, we investigate multiphase chemistry at the air-ice, air-water, and air-solid interfaces.
