Scanning Auger Microprobe

This equipment was upgraded under the "Programa Nacional de Re-equipamento Científico da Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (project REEQ/293/CTM/ 2005)"

The Auger/XPS Laboratory is an IST/ICEMS infrastructure aimed at research and development in the area of surface engineering.
The laboratory is open to all research centers, both from IST and other Universities, public and private institutions as well as industry.
Auger spectroscopy provides elemental and chemical composition for all elements with an atomic number greater than helium. X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS), is used to assess the quantitative atomic composition and detailed chemistry of a material's surface. Both are surface analysis techniques.
