Sapê Beamline

SAPÊ (Angle-resolved PhotoEmission) is a beamline dedicated to high resolution ARPES (Angle-resolved Photoemission spectroscopy) experiments.

It will operate within vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) range of the electromagnetic spectrum, with photon energy between 8 eV and 70 eV. The beam is extracted from a B2 magnet and the photon energies are selected using a VLS-PGM. The micro-focus, with photon flux in the 1011photons per second, will allow the investigation of the electronic structure of samples or domains with area of 20×20 μm2.

It is important to point out that a preparation chamber is attached to the main chamber of the beamline main chamber to support the sample preparation through sputtering-annealing and cleaving process. The endstation consists of a set of chambers in ultrahigh vacuum (UHV) environment to maintain sample integrity after the preparation process.
