Photoemission 101 - What Can XPS & UPS do for You?

Join us on 20th September 2023 for a one-day workshop on photoemission spectroscopy. In conjunction with the Photoemission RTP, this event event aims to allow students to get the most out of the technique and learn best practices from expert speakers from both academia and industry, as well as an opportunity to share how photoemission techniques have enabled their research.

The event is being held at Scarman, University of Warwick, open to all and is FREE to attend.

We have talk slots available for PhD students - please let us know if you are interested.

There will also be poster presentation slots with a prize for the best one, if you'd like to present, please submit an abstract here
