Thought for the month

“You know," said Arthur, "it's at times like this, when I'm trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space that I really wish I'd listened to what my mother told me when I was young." "Why, what did she tell you?" "I don't know, I didn't listen.” From The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams, Author (1952-2001)

"XPS Simplified" webinar – Understanding Metal Surfaces and Oxides: February 22, 2012

Thermo Scientific's latest surface analysis webinar covers the basics of X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, with a special emphasis on how it can be used in the field of metal and oxide analysis. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) is a powerful technique for the chemical analysis of the surface of materials.
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.
