Working in world record high lateral resolution

We have performed the first X-ray spectro-microscopy investigation of diindenoperylene (DIP) thin films deposited on gold at room temperature (RT), by using photoemission electron microscopy (PEEM) and NEXAFS spectroscopy.

Diindenoperylene is a perylene-based molecule that is interesting because of its possible use in organic photovoltaic.

SMART is the X-ray photoelectron emission microscope that has the world record in lateral resolution (about 2.6 nm).
