The AXIS Nova incorporates market leading AXIS technology including coaxial charge neutralization, magnetic immersion lens and delay-line photoelectron detection with a new level of automated sample handling in a compact instrument. The AXIS Nova is ideal for automated QA and problem solving without compromising the ultimate spectroscopic performance required for demanding research applications.
PARALLEL IMAGING AND SMALL AREA SPECTROSCOPY The AXIS Nova provides unrivalled performance for fast elemental and chemical state imaging. The spectrometer uses a 165mm mean radius hemispherical analyser (HSA) for spectroscopy combined with the Kratos patented spherical mirror analyser (SMA) for parallel imaging. In spectroscopy mode the large radius HSA ensures excellent photoelectron transmission guaranteeing high sensitivity and high energy resolution. Small spot spectroscopy is achieved by inserting an aperture into the electrostatic lens column forming a virtual probe at the surface.
