2nd National Workshop on X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) - 2018

September 12 - 13, 2018


National Centre for Physics (NCP) is organizing a Two day “2nd National Workshop on X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS)” from September 12-13, 2018.

Nanoscience and Technology Department (NS&TD) at NCP is equipped with several state of the art characterization techniques, XPS being the latest addition to these. Photoelectron spectroscopy is an immensely valuable nondestructive surface analysis technique (≤ 10nm) based on the photoelectric effect that provides composition and chemical bonding information on the surface of almost any material (conducting or insulating). The XPS equipment at NCP is the only one in the entire country and has therefore become the focus of attention of a large number of researchers. This workshop aims to orient the participants to the basics of this system and its multifaceted applications. The event will hold introductory lectures and case studies from XPS experts, as well as interactive sessions. There will be ample opportunities for the prospective users to learn the potentials of this technique and to determine the prospects of collaborations in this area.
