Why Use SIMS Imaging for Depth Profiling?

Why Use SIMS Imaging for Depth Profiling?

Secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) is advantageous for its high sensitivity and the ability to provide high spatial resolution elemental and molecular information as a function of depth. This makes SIMS imaging an essential tool for depth profiling, where samples'...

Why is SIMS good for Tribofilm analysis

Why is SIMS good for Tribofilm analysis

What are tribofilms? Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry, SIMS can be used to analyse the solid surface layer that forms when materials rub against each other in the presence of a lubricant. The boundary lubricant film, or tribofilm film, is a result of complex chemistry...
