Free Webinar: XPS for
Energy & Environmental
Materials Characterization

An educational Webinar offered jointly
by Oak Ridge National Laboratory and
Thermo Fisher Scientific

Advances in instrumentation mean that materials scientists, nano-technologists and engineers working with materials for energy and environment related projects now have access to the unique capabilities of X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). Chemical engineering of thin film and interfaces in these areas-of-interest often requires characterization on the nanometer scale. XPS is ideally suited for this task, enabling development of a wide range of devices related to renewable and alternative energy technologies.

XPS has a fast sample turnaround, facilitated by its standard-less quantification and the need for little or no sample preparation.  It is a technique that excels at providing full chemical characterization for a wide range of solid materials.  Typical XPS analyses include:

  • Elemental and chemical surface characterization of thin films and ultra thin films prevalent in design of fuels cells, environmental sensors and battery technology
  • Elemental/chemical information as a function of depth for solar cell and fuel cell devices
  • Imaging of interfaces in solar/fuel cell devices (effectiveness of diffusion barriers can be evaluated)
  • Chemical characterization of next generation polymer-based devices (conducting or non-conducting) for OLEDs, solar cells and polymer electronics
