Feature Highlights

  • Focused to photoelectron spectroscopy
  • Very fast data viewing and processing
  • Energy- and angle-resolved experiments
  • Import and export of variety formats
  • Huge amount of data handling
  • Fitting, waterfall charts, quantitative preview
  • Functionality customizable on request

Photoelectron spectroscopy features

  • import of data from many analyzer softwares (SpecsLab, Spectra, Omicron, VG, etc.)
  • complete XML experiment file of SpecsLab can be loaded and processed, including each region channel and sweep data
  • spectra can be acquired by KolXPD (currently with Specs analyzer, others on request)
  • support for synchrotron radiation spectroscopy
  • spectra can be quickly fitted with most common peak shapes and backgrounds
  • all data are organized in one tree structure
  • just select more items to view them in one multiview chart
  • multiview has many icons for instant processing which doesn't affect original data. Just click to view normalized spectra, make waterfall, subtract background, show fit results, smooth, etc.
  • using multiview it is possible to fit dozens of spectra quickly and automatically
  • all result data can be exported, all graphs copied into clipboard and pasted anywhere
  • data can be transferred in both directions between KolXPD and WaveMetrics Igor Pro for further processing and presentation

Multidimensional experiments

  • support for energy-resolved experiments using synchrotron radiation – methods like NEXAFS, Resonant photoemission, etc.
  • support for angle-resolved spectroscopy, e.g. XPD
  • (X-ray Photoelectron Diffraction) and ARUPS (Angle-Resolved UV Photoelectron Spectroscopy - band mapping)
  • KolXPD can measure this experiments using analyzer, sample manipulator or beamline monochromator
  • 2-dimensional angle-resolved data can be plotted as a pattern picture in Cartesian or polar coordinates
  • thousands of 2D experiment spectra can be easily and automatically fitted by one shape
  • intensity of each pattern point can be spectrum area or any parameter of fit function
  • results of XPD pattern modeling software EDAC can be imported and displayed in same way
  • multidimensional data can be imported and exported, including pattern pictures – as both text and image format

Other features

  • tree structure is useful for whole experiment handle; other items can be added to describe experiment steps e.g. cleaning, heating, deposition, gas exposure etc.
  • you can add own notes to any item; folders and note items can contain HTML-formatted text
  • simple image browser e.g. for LEED pictures
  • KolXPD allows simple quantitative preview by showing peak areas corrected by analyzer transmission function and photoemission cross-section
  • relative concentrations can be showed for each folder; it's useful for preview of concentration evolution during experimental steps
  • all files of KolXPD has open text format – you can write an import to your favorite software
