XPS and TOF-SIMS to solve adhesive failure of a polyethylene-ethylene acrylic acid (co-polymer) heat seal to polyethylene in a medical device.
Atomic Layer Deposition technology aids in the demand for computational advancement in the microelectronics industry.
Structural and Chemical Characterization of Li-ion Batteries help to understand why batteries fail leading to safer products and improvements.
For 3D printed products, XPS can provide composition and bonding information for the top 5-10nm sample surfaces. Oftentimes, surface contamination/oxide thickness would affect the appearance (as well as performance when applicable) of the material, and XPS could help identify the source and/or cause.
Analytical tools to understand chemical properties of polymers for adhesion, printability, barrier performance, appearance and strength
Antibacterial coated sutures reduce the occurrence of surgical site infections. Triclosan has been used in coatings on poliglecaprone.
Cold stage analysis has been shown to be effective for samples that are not solids at room temperature or that have components that are volatile in a vacuum system, such as the antibacterial coated sutures.
Measuring the chemical state of the battery components such as the cathode, anode, separator, electrolyte, contact layers and additives, at various stages of cycling, provides vital information about the electrochemical processes that occur during battery use.
Contamination control and defect reduction are critical issues in the manufacturing process of compound semiconductor devices which can impact the performance of the end product. We can provide valuable insights to identify contaminants and characterize materials throughout the product lifecycle.
PCOR-SIMS was originally developed to analyze Silicon Germanium (SiGe) devices for the communications industry.
