All templates can be customized and extended with automation commands for sample movements, sputter cycles, heating treatments, gas flows, or other things. Spectra can be measured in different scan modes („Fixed Analyzer Transmission“, „Snapshot“, „Fixed Energy“, „Constant Initial State“, „Constant Final State“ and „Fixed Retarding Ratio“) depending on the application, like XPS, UPS, ISS, AES, or ARPES.
Furthermore, spectra can repeatedly be acquired during optimization by the user until the sample position, other experimental parameters, or device settings have reached optimal conditions.
To simplify the setup of the measurements the integrated periodic table of chemical elements gives access to a database with pre-defined regions for core level excitations of all elements. The most sensitive transitions are marked with an asterisk to support operators during the analysis of unknown samples.
