Key Applications for EnviroESCA™

liquids   Liquids 
 

Water and aqueous reagents are essential in any biological process or system. But apart from a few special low vapor-pressure cases, liquids have not been accessible to any techniquerequiring UHV conditions. EnviroESCA opens up this exciting field of applications.

 
gaseous and liquid environments
 
  Gaseous and Liquid Environments
 

The interaction of gases and liquids with surfaces plays a key role in many different fields ranging from biological and catalytic systems to construction materials. EnviroESCA offers the possibility of investigating surfaces in contact with gases and liquids, such as salt water, acidic rain, wastewater, or gaseous atmospheres with high humidity.  

     
Astrochemistry and Astrobiology   Astrochemistry and Astrobiology
 

The interaction of organic molecules with water and ice surfaces in atmospheres that can be found on distant planets is a vital field of research. EnviroESCA can create sample environments that realistically simulate conditions in planetary atmospheres such as on Mars, where the pressure ranges from 10-6 mbar to 7 mbar. 

     
Biological Material   Biological Material
 

With the capability of operating in the near ambient pressure regime EnviroESCA offers an entirely new opportunity to investigate biological materials and processes, making ESCA more versatile than ever before.
 

     
Soils and Minerals   Soils and Minerals
 

XPS analysis is widely used in soil and Mineral research for characterizing surface organic films, mineral decomposition and redox transformations. Until now these studies were limited to UHV compatible samples. EnviroESCA overcomes this constraint and offers new exciting possibilities.

     
Fabrics   Fabrics
 

The performance of highly sophisticated fabrics is governed by the interaction of the interface with the surrounding atmosphere. By studying the surface properties of the fibers in wet air, deeper insights into relevant processes under more realistic conditions can be gained. 

     
Energy Material and Devices
 
  Energy Material and Devices
 

Batteries and fuel cells are devices that use chemical reactions to store and convert energy. Fuel cells for instance consume fuel and oxidants during operation so that their investigation is not possible in traditional XPS spectrometers. With EnviroESCA the fundamental steps in such devices can be investigated in operando.

     
Polymers and Plastics
 
  Polymers and Plastics
 

Polymers and plastics are used in many fields such as food grade packaging and medical technology. Their composition is especially important when the polymers get in direct contact with food or humans. With EnviroESCA the concentration of hazardous contaminations can be quantified regardless of their vacuum compatibility.

     
Medical and Biomaterials   Medical and Biomaterials
 

Medical implants are devices or tissues that are placed inside or on the surface of the body. A widely used material for surgical implants is Titanium. It is important to be able to analyze the Ti surface to achieve optimized interactions with the surrounding tissue.

     
Catalysts   Catalysts
 

The function and efficiency of a catalyst is principally determined by its surface properties. XPS and NAP-XPS are proven and powerful tools for investigating catalytic behaviour in studies ranging from model systems to real world materials.
 

     
Coatings and Thin Films   Coatings and Thin Films
 

Coatings and platings are widely used in optics manufacturing and metal refinement as they optimize the surface properties of materials to make them harder, stronger and more durable. The coatings are thin films which interact with the substrate on one side and the gaseous or liquid Environment on the other.

     
Nanomaterials   Nanomaterials
 

Nanomaterials have attracted a lot of attention from Research and industry in the past decades. Questions about the influence of the surrounding atmosphere on the chemical composition and potential core-shell structure are ideally addressed by EnviroESCA.
 

     
Corrosion   Corrosion
 

The reliability of mechanical or electrical connections depends strongly on their chemical composition and degree of corrosion. EnviroESCA facilitates the investigation of the metal surface in interaction with its surrounding gas or liquid phase environment to gain a detailed understanding of processes governing corrosion.  

     
Metals   Metals
 

Metallic parts can rapidly be analyzed without pre-cleaning or surface preparation. With the unrivaled short sample loading time and the robotic AutoLoader they can be taken directly from the production line for quality control.  
 

     
Microelectronics and Semiconductors   Microelectronics and Semiconductors
 

The quality of conductive platings on printed circuit boards is crucial for the operation of any microelectronicdevice. With the AutoLoader this high performance tool is ideally suited for unattended and automated analysis of microelectronic devices.
 

     
Magnetic Media   Magnetic Media
 

The chemical composition of materials from magnetic media can precisely be determined despite their magnetization. Due to the abscence of artificial magnetic fields in the measurement position magnetic samples can be measured without affecting their properties.
