Groundbreaking K-alpha Materials Characterisation Instrument Wins Top Award
Aug 24 2007
Traditionally XPS is a technique that requires large, expensive instrumentation, operated by expert analysts, even for routine analysis. Featuring a small footprint, the unique Thermo Scientific K-Alpha is capable of performing most routine operations with little or no user intervention, releasing analysts from mundane and repetitive tasks. Maximizing sample throughput and increasing reporting productivity are especially important in today's laboratories. Uniquely, the K-Alpha requires no manual interaction once the samples are loaded into the instrument. All instrument and data processing are handled using the Microsoft Windows-based data system, Avantage.
Richard G White, product manager, Surface Analysis, Thermo Fisher Scientific said: "We are very proud to be recognized by the R&D 100 award panel for the K-Alpha's novel technical features. The award confirms Thermo Fisher's status as a leader in surface characterization, and is testament to the dedication and technological expertise of our entire team in delivering powerful analytical solutions that make a real difference to our customers in many surface analysis applications."
