K-Alpha, which is developed from Thermo Scientific, is a fully integrated, monochromated small-spot X-ray Photoelectron Spectrometer (XPS) system. It is suitable for use in several existing and new surface analysis application areas as it has low cost of ownership, high performance, convenient usage, and compact size.
This tool is ideal for a multi-user environment to satisfy the requirements of experienced XPS analysts and newcomers to this technique. It is designed in such a way that it automatically enters the sample and generates the report. It includes new software features which are used for improving the experience of the user. It has improved chemical detectability and high countrates.
The key features of the K-Alpha are:
- 180° double focusing hemispherical analyser
- 128-channel detector
- Ion gun
- Tilt module is available for ARXPS data collection
- Recirculating inert-gas glove box is available for transferring air-sensitive samples
- Vacuum system
- X-ray source
- Avantage software interface is used for controlling all hardware.
