Raman Spectroscopy: Vibrational spectroscopic
technique used to provide information on molecular vibrations
and crystal structures, spectral and mapping analysis.
Ellipsometry: Measurements for thin metal and
dielectic ﬁlm diﬀraction constants and dielectic functions,
optical constants, thin ﬁlm thickness and total ﬁlm thickness
properties, surface roughness, absorption coeﬃcient, optical
band gap, transmittance and diffraction.
Fluorescence Spectroscopy: A type of
electromagnetic spectroscopy that analyses fluorescence from a
TGA/DTA: Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) is a
technique in which the mass of a substance is monitored as a
function of temperature or time as the sample specimen is
subjected to a controlled temperature program in a controlled
atmosphere. Differential thermal analysis (DTA) is a technique
in which the thermal effects in the material as a function of
temperature are observed.
Microtomography: Provides 3D images of sample
morphology and internal microstructure with resolution down to
the sub-micron level via X Ray scanning.
UV-VIS Spectroscopy: Refers to absorption
spectroscopy in the ultraviolet-visible spectral region which is
used to determine analyte concentration either at one time or
often over a desired time period.
Contact Angle Measurement: Observes the
wettability of a solid substrate by a liquid for determining the
surface tension, hydrophilicity and contact angle of materials.
Light Microscopy: Uses visible light and a
system of lenses to magnify images of materials without the need
of sample preparation.
