Nano and Molecular Systems Research Unit has research infrastructure for studying electronic properties of matter in all forms. Methods include electron spectroscopies, fluorescence spectroscopy, mass spectrometry and fragmentation analysis as well as electronic state selective coincidence studies. Our laboratory in Oulu is specialized in test measurements for synchrotron light sources and for developing and building research instruments.

The unit has a strong contribution to the Finnish-Estonian Beamline for Atmospheric and Materials Science (FinEstBeAMS) located at the 1.5 GeV ring at MAX IV Laboratory synchrotron radiation source in Lund, Sweden.
