Elemental Analysis

High resolution quantitative elemental analysis

  • elemental analysis
    All elements in the periodic table
  • Depth profiles of elements - typical resolution 10nm

Common sample types

  • Thin films (up to 5 mm thick)
  • Nano-surfaces
  • Metals
  • Ceramics
  • Superconductors
  • Materials
  • Soils
  • Environmental samples
