Presented: Wednesday, April 1, 2020

SMART-Chart-XPS-1Let's take a deeper dive into our SMART Chart! Our first webinar in this series will be focused on X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS).

XPS is a surface analysis technique which is used to determine quantitative atomic composition and chemistry. This information can be used to compare surface treatments, identify stains and residues, and determine the root cause of adhesion problems. When combined with energetic ion sputtering, the resulting depth profiles can measure the composition of thin films as a function of depth.
