Near-ambient-pressure X-ray and ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopies

47c-instr-nap.jpg

X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) is a surface-sensitive quantitative spectroscopic technique, which measures the elemental composition, empirical formula, chemical state, and electronic state of the top approximately 10 nm of a material. XPS spectra are obtained by irradiating the material with a beam of X-rays while simultaneously…

Magnetron sputtering systems

1265c-IMG-20190117-153342.jpg

Magnetron sputtering is a method of thin film preparation which belongs to the family of physical vapor deposition (PVD) techniques. Two electrodes are placed in a low-pressure atmosphere of an inert working gas (e.g. Ar). A conductive material to be deposited, referred to as the target, is mounted on the cathode (negative electrode). A set of…
