An introduction to our best-selling APS04 system.
The Ambient-pressure Photoemission Spectroscopy (APS) system measures the absolute work function of a material by photoemission in ambient conditions, no vacuum is required. The excitation range of APS is 3.4 eV to 7.0 eV, meaning that APS is capable of measuring the absolute work function of metals and the ionisation potential of semiconductors alongside measurement of the surface Fermi level with the Kelvin probe.
This system comes with an SPV and SPS source, therefore the full bands of semiconductors can be measured in one complete desktop system; no other product in the world can do this.
