Surface chemistry experimental station

 The surface chemistry experimental station was designed to study chemical reaction at surfaces and interfaces. It has been permanently installed in the experimental hall of the storage ring building. The apparatus consists of 6 vacuum chambers; the load lock chamber, the surface preparation chamber, the scanning probe microscope (SPM) chamber, the reaction chamber, the synchrotron radiation (SR) monitor chamber, and the supersonic molecular beam (SSMB) generator. Surface cleaning can be performed in the surface preparation chamber using an Ar-ion sputtering gun and sample annealing up to 1450 K. Reconstructed structures and chemical components at surfaces are observable by low-energy electron diffraction (LEED) and Auger electron spectroscopy (AES) techniques. A gas doser with a variable leak valve is used for adsorption of atoms and molecules with thermal energy. A scanning tunneling microscope (STM) and an atomic force microscope (AFM) are available at room temperature in the SPM chamber using an Omicron UHV-SPM apparatus. In the reaction chamber, the SSMB and the monochromatic SR beam can be irradiated simultaneously at a sample surface so that real-time photoemission spectroscopy can be performed in a temperature range of 150 K to 1450 K using an Omicron EA125 electron energy analyzer with 5 channeltrons. An Ar-ion sputtering gun, an Al/Mg twin-anode X-ray source and a gas doser with a variable leak valve are also available in the reaction chamber. The SR monitor chamber plays a role of differential pumping to prevent gas diffusion into the beamline. Gas dose with thermal and hyperthermal energy and measurements of real-time XPS, STM/AFM, LEED/AES are available in this experimental station.
