Thought for the month
“You always own the option of having no opinion. There is never any need to get worked up or to trouble your soul about things you can't control. These things are not asking to be judged by you. Leave them alone.”
Marcus Aurelius Antonius, Emperor and Stoic philosopher (121-180).

"XPS Simplified" webinar – Understanding Metal Surfaces and Oxides: February 22, 2012
Date: February 22, 2012
Session 1 - 2:00pm (GMT)
Session 2 - 6:00pm (GMT)
Duration: 1 hour
Requiring little or no sample preparation and with the ability to directly quantify all elements except hydrogen and helium, XPS delivers chemical state information from the topmost few nanometers of the surface of a sample. Modern instruments, such as the Thermo Scientific K-Alpha, can extend analyses into chemical images of the surface, or reveal the composition of buried interfaces using depth profiling. These strengths allow scientists and engineers to measure passivation coatings, understand catalyst chemistries and develop bio-compatible coatings.
