APE-HE endstation replaced the analyzer for XPS characterisation, upgrading to the first Scienta R3000 analyzer installed with the 2D Delay Line Detector developed by the Electromagnetism Group of Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste.

The new analyzer improves the energy resolution for XPS spectra and gives the opportunity to measure Angle Resolved Photoemission spectra (ARPES) in the 300-1500 eV photon energy range.
Moreover, the 2D Delay Line Detector is designed to allow in the next future Ultrafast Photoemission Spectroscopy measurements for time-resolved experiments.
