Workshop 2: Spectro-microscopy at the Nanoscale: Exploring Chemical, Electronic and Magnetic Properties of Novel Materials

Date: Monday, May 15, 2017

Organizer(s): Ruud Tromp, rtromp@us.ibm.com (IBM TJ Watson Research Center), Elio Vescovo, vescovo@bnl.gov (NSLS-II, BNL), Jurek Sadowski, sadowski@bnl.gov (CFN, BNL)

Location: Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN), Bldg. 735, Large Conference Room


Synchrotron-based spectro-microscopies, such as x-ray photoemission electron microscopy (XPEEM) and high-resolution angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) are powerful methods for studying chemical, electronic, and magnetic properties of materials.  As new facilities, including the NSLS-II Electron Spectro-Microscopy (ESM) beamline, are coming online, they offer expanded capabilities for spectroscopic characterization of surfaces at nanometer scale.  These new instruments and recent developments in k-space imaging/momentum microscopy generate increased interest in the science community.  It opens new opportunities, but also creates new challenges in further technique development, as well as in the multi-dimensional, multi-set data acquisition and analysis.  This workshop aims to bring together experts in the field of electron spectro-microscopy to explore these perspectives and challenges, spanning from new experimental capabilities for spectro-microscopic characterization of emerging materials, new spin filters and detectors, to the theory of electron optics.
