The University of Maryland MRSEC grants ended in September 2013 after 17 years of successful operation. This site remains as a history of the center, but will not be actively maintained.

Shared Experimental Facilities (SEF)

X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS)


This X-ray photoelectron spectroscopic facility provides compositional, oxidation-state, and depth profiling analysis of solid materials. Two X-ray sources and efficient charge neutralization make this instrument suitable for the analysis of conducting and nonconducting samples. The XPS is integrated with Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry's Shared Instruments for materials chemical analysis.
