WHO: Stephen Urquhart, Konstantin Kaznacheyev (U. Sask) Adam Hitchcock (McMaster)
WHAT: Arrival of CaPeRS - Canadian Photemission
CaPeRS has already demonstrated better than 10 nm resolution with a Hg arc lamp (world record resolution with similar instruments is 3 nm). In the hands of Adam and Stephen in our first test run we were able to achieve better than 20 nm on a non-ideal Pb on polycrystalline Mo sample, using Hg arc lamp illumination.
It will be used for a variety of surface and thin film science - biomaterial optimization, X-ray natural circular dichroism, tribology, magnetic thin films and nanostructures.
