NEXUS is the UK's National EPSRC XPS Users' Service. It's hosted by nanoLAB near the centre of Newcastle.

X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) is one of the principal methods of probing the composition and electronic structure of surfaces.

There is an increasing number of research applications for XPS in:

  • electronics and semiconductor physics
  • novel materials and biomaterials
  • surface chemistry and functionalisation
  • sensor surfaces
  • adhesion
  • abrasion
  • tribology

To find out more about NEXUS and XPS go to the NEXUS website.
