Summary on Grant Application Form
The RUSTI facility at Daresbury Laboratory is equipped with a world class electron spectrometer, a Scienta TSCA300. This is used by a large number of University (and Industrial) research groups in a wide variety of fields. This collaborative application from Dr G Beamson (Daresbury) and three of the principal users of the spectrometer, Professor P Weighman (University of Liverpool) and Professors J F Watts and P Tsakiropoulos (University of Surrey) seeks to develop a novel high energy X-ray souce (W La1) for the ESCA300. This souce, combined with the existing high energy electron analyser, will provide unique capabilities for the electron spectroscopy of materials. Once commisioned, the new source will be made available to academic and industrial researchers by way of the well-established user programme. The W La1 source will enable deep core photoelectron lines (such as Fe 1s and Ni 1s) and their associated KLL Auger transitions to be recorded for the first time. The source will be used by the investigators associated with this proposal for a braod research programme aimed at more complete understanding of the electronic structure of steels, and other alloys, and the study of buried interfaces in semiconductor materials.
