There are few areas in modern technology where surfaces and their interactions with their environment do not play a decisive role. Surface analysis—the chemistry of the top few atomic layers—often provides the key for failure analysis, development of new products and processes, and the like. Understanding of how surfaces interact with their environment is the foundation for many basic research studies.
The Swagelok Center for Surface Analysis of Materials (SCSAM) at Case Western Reserve University provides the most important and state-of-the-art techniques of surface analysis: X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (also known as ESCA or Electron Spectroscopy for Chemical Analysis); Auger Electron Spectroscopy (AES); Time-Of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectroscopy (TOF-SIMS) as well as four SEMs that provide microchemical analysis using X-ray Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (XEDS). Case Western Reserve is pleased to offer a five-day short course and workshop on Applied Surface Analysis that offers in-depth instruction and hands-on demonstrations of these major surface analysis techniques.
Registration Closed and Workshop cancelled. To schedule a personal tour or meet with engineers contact Mandy Economos at (216) 368-3868, email@example.com.
We will be organizing a new workshop Summer 2013 based upon interest so let us know! We encourage visitors and engineers offer training one-on-one at our regular "Federally approved" hourly rates.
