In this recently published “Insight from Industry” interview Dr Graham Cooke, Principal Scientist at Hiden Analytical talks to AZoM about understanding the vital role of surface measurements in corrosion and cleanliness studies.
Surface analysis is crucial in manufacturing as it measures the chemical composition of a material’s surface, where reactions with the environment occur. Hiden Analytical specializes in secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS), a sensitive technique used in various industries, including semiconductors, optical coatings, metallurgy, and batteries. Hiden offers a range of SIMS instruments to assess surface cleanliness and help deposit thin, uniform coatings on products. SIMS is particularly effective in lithium detection, making it essential for battery research. As the field changes, Hiden Analytical aims to provide cost-effective, easy-to-use, and customized instruments to meet clients’ needs in different industries.
