Surface Analysis

Methods: Auger electron spectroscopy (AES), X-Ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS, ESCA), Secondary Ion Mass-spectroscopy (SIMS), Plasmon losses spectroscopy, High resolution electron energy losses spectroscopy (HREELS), Analysis of the atomic structure of the surface (EELFS)

1. Auger electron spectroscopy (AES)
  • Sample preparation (angle laps)
  • Preparation of powder samples
  • Analysis of chemical composition of the surface...220 USD/specimen; 1 work day;
  • Depth profiling:
    • using angle laps
    • or ion etching 450 USD/specimen
  • Investigation of chemical composition of samples fractured in the UHV
2.Secondary Ion Mass-spectroscopy (SIMS)
  • Sample preparation (angle laps)
  • Preparation of powder materials
  • Analysis of chemical composition of the surface
3. X-Ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS, ESCA)

Plasmon losses spectroscopy, High resolution electron energy losses spectroscopy (HREELS), Analysis of the atomic structure of the surface (EELFS) are the specific scientists investigations and their prices will be estimated in dependence of aims of investigations

4. Differential Thermal Analysis

A small samples (~ 1 g) from -196 to 1600 degress Celcius on air, in argon protective atmosphere or in vacuum ten to the negative one Pa.
