Available techniques

Our offer for the industrial users is based on the research techniques available at the three operational beamlines: UARPES, PEEM/XAS and PHELIX. Two additional beamlines: XMCD and SOLABS, as well as cryo – electron microscope (cryoEM) will be available by mid-2021.

Available techniques are divided into three main categories: spectroscopic, diffraction and microscopic.
