In-Situ Characterization

In-situ Characterization Technique at UW IBL

UW IBL is capable to conduct in-situ surface characterization through techniques including Rutherford Backscattering Spectrometry (RBS), Elastic Recoil Detection Analysis (ERDA), Particle-induced X-ray emission (PIXE), and Nuclear Reaction Analysis (NRA). These techniques allows users to do compositional, structural, particle penetration depth, and other material properties analysis. More details about these techniques can be found in the reference papers and project slides below
