Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has announced the Escalab 250Xi x-ray photoelectron spectrometer (XPS), a surface characterization tool for use by engineers working in R&D of new surface chemistries or performing routine characterization of surfaces, thin films and coatings. The system combines the high-performance spectrometer with proprietary Avantage XPS acquisition and processing software and an integrated parallel image detection system that enables quantitative spectroscopic analysis of small features within the image field of view. The Avantage data system guides analysts through data acquisition, interpretation, processing and report generation. Ion-scattering spectroscopy and reflection electron energy loss spectroscopy are provided with the instrument, and ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy and Auger electron spectroscopy are available as options.
