The Quantes is a scanning microprobe that combines traditional XPS measurements with extended depth of analysis by the use of Hard X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (HAXPES). The latter uses a Cr X-ray source that achieves roughly three times the depths of analysis as what can be obtained by an Al X-ray source. Switching between the two X-ray sources on the Quantes is fast and user-friendly. Stand-out features such as automatic analysis, automated sample transfer, turnkey charge neutralization, and advanced data processing are all included.

About Physical Electronics

Since 1969, Physical Electronics (PHI) has been providing UHV surface analysis instrumentation, which is used for research and development of advanced materials. What started with a sole focus on Auger surface analysis instruments, later expanded to technologies like XPS and TOF-SIMS to address a growing range of applications.

Why Physical Electronics?

♦   Unique tools

♦   Helps enabling next generation technologies

♦   More than decades of experience
