Surface and thin film technology

Material surfaces and their coatings play an increasingly important role for today‘s innovative products.
The structure and chemical composition of the first nanometer of a product influence or determine its functional or aesthetic characteristics.

Therefore, suitable analytical techniques have to be employed in product development, process control and quality assurance to clarify and illustrate the chemical composition and structure of surfaces.

For this purpose, SGS INSTITUT FRESENIUS can provide you with a customised, extensive analysis spectrum and numerous image techniques

Our range of services:

  • Inspection, Surface topography, Laternal structures, Vertical structure of layer systems, Material flaws,grain structure
  • Measurement, Roughness, layer thickness, hardness, adhesive strength, particle size, textures
  • Analysis Oxides, adsorbates and residual layers on surfaces, chemical composition of layers and layer systems (e.g. stoichiometry), chemical bonds on the surface and in the layer volumes, residual layers and contaminants on interfaces, layer defects, element depth profiles and element maps, determination of substances
  • Technological-relevant evaluation Evaluation of corrosion protection systems Characterization and evaluation of surface treatment and cleaning processes
