Auger Analysis (AES)

MES offers several Auger analysis for your compositional analysis, depth-profiling, and interface analysis needs. Our Auger Electron Spectrometer (AES) will help you to investigate surface contaminants and examination of your thin films too thin for EDS analysis. Auger provides surface-sensitive techniques that provide elemental analysis down to a single atomic layer.

Applications of the Auger microprobes include the following:

  • Analysis of surface contamination contributing to corrosion, wear, and oxidation
  • In depth surface film, coating, and thin film analysis
  • Analysis of grain boundary chemistry
