Benjamin Schmidt, Physical Electronics
Benjamin Schmidt, Staff Scientist will discuss three ion beam options – monoatomic argon, C60 ¬cluster, and argon gas cluster ion beam (GCIB) – available on XPS systems from Physical Electronics.
♦ General operation of each gun and discuss capabilities and limitations for analysis of inorganic, organic, and mixed materials.
♦ Several side-by-side examples will illustrate how sputter rates, interface resolution, chemical state information, and preferential sputtering can affect the analysis.
♦ Recommendations will be presented on how to choose the correct ion gun for your application and how combinations of ion beams can be used to optimize surface analysis experiments.
– Surface cleaning to remove adventitious contamination and enhance signal from sample material
– Depth profiling to understand layer thinknesses, compositional changes from processing, and other properties

Dr. Wenqing Shi, Park Systems
Dr. Shi, Application Scientist at Park Systems, is proud to present an introduction to PinPoint piezoelectric force microscopy (PFM)
PFM is one type of scanning probe microscopy (SPM) technique that allows imaging and manipulation of piezoelectric and ferroelectric materials domains.
PFM functions by engaging a sample surface with a sharp conductive SPM probe. This probe’s tip then has an alternating current (AC) bias applied to it in order to cause a deformation of the sample surface by way of a piezoelectric force. The PinPoint variant of PFM, specific to Park Systems AFMs, enables image acquisition with higher spatial resolution without any lateral force.
