microcapsule. Their extreme versatility promises to deliver “chemicals on demand ” for a wide range of applications, particularly in the biomedical and industrial chemical and electronics fields.

4. An international collaboration that included Berke- ley Lab scientists Frank Ogletree, Hendrik Bluhm, Zahid Hussain and Miquel Salmeron, working at Berkeley Lab’s Advanced Light Source (ALS), deve- loped a novel lens system that makes possible the use of X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy techno- logy under pressures and humidities similar to those encountered in the natural environment. Called the Ambient Pressure PhotoElectron Lens System (AP- PELS), this new technique has already led to ground- breaking discoveries in climate change, atmospheric science, nanotechnology and industrial processes, such as heterogeneous catalysis. Also part of the col- laboration were SPECS GmbH, a German firm that

designs and produces surface analysis instruments, and Robert Schlögl of the Franz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society.
