EMIL (Energy Materials In Situ Lab)

HZB - EMIL – Energy Materials In-situ Laboratory Berlin

EMIL at BESSY II uniquely combines industry-relevant deposition tools that are in-system connected to off- and on-synchrotron analysis chambers providing a complementing set of photon-in-electron-out and photon-in-photon-out spectroscopic techniques that make full use of the “two-color” beamline that allows a “depth-dependent” characterization of thin-film layer stack samples using an x-ray photon energy range from the soft (80 eV) to the hard (10.000 eV) x-ray energy regime. EMIL is thus particularly well suited for in-system, in-situ, and operando characterization of energy conversion materials and structures revealing their chemical and electronic structure (incl. energy level alignment), etc.
