    Kratos AXIS Supra_iac
    Axis Supra system is the state of the art electron spectrometer combining X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), micro XPS and imaging XPS. It is equipped with monochromatic X-ray source and dual Al-Mg anode. High collection efficiency and high spatial resolution is provided by a magnetic lens. For low collection angles an electrostatic lens can be used, either independently or in combination with the magnetic lens. Hemispherical analyser - HSA - provides both high energy resolution and high sensitivity for micro spectroscopy with spatial resolution.

    Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS)_iac
    Dynamic SIMS equipment for elemental identification of extreme surface or depth of various devices with a sensitivity down to ppb . This instrument is capable of detecting all elements in periodic table, from hydrogen to uranium, including their corresponding isotopes. It is equipped with oxygen and argon guns that can produce intense and focused ion beams. Oxygen is ideal for the analysis of electropositive elements with the highest sensitivity. Using specific protocols based on reference samples, the quantification of elements present with concentration lower than a few percent (typically from 10-6 – 1 %) can be easily achieved. For elements present with higher concentration (matrix effect regime), the SIMS workstation has the capability to ionizing neutral emitted species using an electron impact source (SNMS) whose generated ions are analyzed using a MAXIM quadrupole spectrometer with an available mass range of up to 510u. The SIMS instrument is also equipped with an oxygen flooding capability to improve the depth resolution (~ 5nm) during depth profiling of specific devices.
    Sample - solid samples only with a maximum dimension of 1 x 1 x 0.5cm.
