Non-Destructive Analysis

We perform analytical tests focusing on the outermost layer of solid materials to determine the elemental, molecular, and chemical state of the surface.

Actual Images & Data of Analysis
Focused Ion Beam (FIB) Sectioning is used for site-specific material milling.  It is capable of producing small-scale, “polished-finish” cross-sections, free of curtaining and smearing.  It uses a focused beam of ions, in particular Ga+ ions, to remove material at a range of pre-defined currents.
 
Using ADMATEL’s Focused Ion Beam (FIB), here is an etched image of Dr. Jose Rizal on Copper substrate captured at 6,000x magnification with an approximate size of 16×21 microns.
