The low-temperature scanning probe microscope incorporates cryo-temperature scanning tunnel microscopy with non-contact atomic force microscopy, enabling studies of samples down to 5 degrees Kelvin, or -450 degrees Fahrenheit . The system allows for a variety of surface analysis techniques, including X-ray/ultra-violet photoelectron, Auger and ion scattering spectroscopies, and preparation techniques, such as thin-film evaporation and ion sputtering. It is a unique system for examining the molecular details of chemical reactions that are important for catalysis and photocatalysis, revealing active reaction sites. It also extends EMSL’s ability to study details of molecular processes at an atomic level. EMSL is a national scientific user facility located at PNNL.
