The ability to perform surface studies is
afforded by a Perkin Elmer 560 system, equipped with X-Ray
Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS or ESCA), Auger Electron
Spectroscopy (AES), and Ion Scattering Spectroscopy (ISS),
that can be combined with depth profiling using sputtering
with a 0.1-5 keV ion beam. The facility is used by researchers
in the department, and by other researchers at U.Va., other
universities, national laboratories, and industry, to
investigate and solve a wide range of surface problems.
Samples studies include pure metals and alloys, ceramics,
composites, polymers, minerals, and condensed gases.
In addition, a 300 kV ion accelerator
(Veeco/Accelerators inc) allows to modify the surface
layers of materials by ion implantation of a wide variety of
ions across the periodic table.
