X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS)

Testing and validation > Spectroscopy

Description

X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) is a quantitative technique that measures the composition and electronic state of the elements are on the surface of a sample. Spectra are obtained by irradiating a sample with a beam of X-rays while measuring the number of electrons of a specific energy that escape...

  • Description

    The Omnivac X-ray photoelectron spectrometer (XPS) is a glovebox-attached system that allows for samples to be fabricated, transported and analysed without ever being exposed to the atmosphere. XPS can be used to determine the elemental and molecular composition of the surface of a sample – especially useful for characterising the fabrication of thin films and semiconductor technologies.
