The Thermo k-alpha x-ray photoelectron spectrometer is equipped with monochromatic Al k-alpha x-ray source for high energy resolution XPS analysis of a broad range of samples on spots as small as 30 µm. The instrument can perform hands off analysis of insulating materials. Additionally, the system is equipped with argon ion beam sputtering system for depth profiling and a gas cluster ion bombardment source which allows molecular depth profiling of polymeric materials.
This is an accordion element with a series of buttons that open and close related content panels.
