The GD-Profiler 2™ provides fast, simultaneous analysis of all elements of interest including the gases oxygen, hydrogen and chlorine. It is an ideal tool for thin and thick films characterization and process studies.

Equipped with an RF source that can operate in pulsed mode for fragile samples, the range of applications of the GD-Profiler 2™ goes from corrosion studies to PVD coating process control, from thin film PV development to LED Quality Control and it is used in Universities as well as in Industrial Research laboratories.

Elements list: H, O, Si, Ta, Nb, Cu, C, Zr, Ni, S, Ti, Fe, Sn, Al, Mn, V, Cr, Li, F
