    Horiba - presents: Characterization of Multilayer Coatings: Composition and Thickness using Multiple Techniques

    Event Description:

    Glow Discharge – Optical Emission Spectroscopy (GD-OES) is a powerful technique for depth profile analysis (i.e., elemental composition of layers vs depth). It can sputter up to 150 microns depth in a matter of minutes while providing a nanometer scale in-depth resolution. Both conductive and non-conductive materials can be analyzed. New innovative patented features can measure the sputter rate in real time, immediately providing the thickness of any layer without any calibration. However, like other optical emission spectroscopic techniques, calibration is necessary to get concentrations.

    Sometimes it is not easy to find suitable reference materials for this purpose (mainly for elements such as O, N, and H). By using other analytical techniques, like XRF, and elemental analyzers for C/S/O/N/H, the calibration of the depth profiles becomes easier.

    In this webinar, attendees will learn:

    • How to measure the sputter rate in real time
    • How to make the calibration of depth profiles easier
    • How the combination of different bulk measurements with depth profile analysis will provide fully quantified depth profile (concentration vs depth)


    Speaker(s) Bio:


    @Philippe Hunault received his instrumentation engineering degree in France in 1979. He was involved in alpha, beta, and gamma spectroscopy at the beginning of his career, then joined Horiba Jobin Yvon in 1985 as the Glow Discharge Optical Emission Spectrometry product manager. After promoting GD-OES worldwide for 12 years, Philippe joined the Horiba team in the U.S. 17 years ago to promote the Horiba Elemental analyzers in North America.

     


    Kayvon Savadkouei has a master's degree in organic chemistry focusing on characterization of organic molecules using spectroscopic techniques, from Kharazmi University. He joined Horiba Scientific in 2013 as an applications scientist. Prior to that, he worked in the petrochemical industry for 24 years in various technical functions, including as a chemist, scientist, and ultimately, project manager for lubricating oil additives, pesticides, herbicides and plasma-driven gas reactions projects.
