Surface characterisation

SERMA Technologies and its surface characterisation laboratory Science et Surface give information on surfaces and interfaces, which play a key part in many industrial fields such as wear, corrosion, adhesion, contamination…

The given information is for example:

  • an elemental and quantitative analysis of the top atomic layers from the nanometer to a few tenth of microns,
  • a chemical analysis: information about bonds, oxidation states, functional groups,
  • a molecular analysis,
  • traces analysis,
  • the localization of the elements with:
    • a high depth resolution: elemental profiling (from a few nanometers to a few microns),
    • a high spatial resolution: elemental and molecular imaging (spatial resolution < 1µm),
  • any solid material analysis, including powders and insulating samples.
