with support from high-class scientific analysis tools

Performance features


Quantitative measurements of pore sizes with sub-nm resolution

Measurement of pore / void concentrations


Characterization of atomistic defect types such as vacancies, vacancy cluster, dislocation and other structural defects …

Quantitative measurement of atomistic defect concentration with high sensitivity < ppm level

Highlights of the method

Non-destructive analysis method

Direct measurement: No tracers molecules necessary

Measurement of closed pores / buried pores

Depth profiles of defects and pores

Sample temperature variable from -190°C - +300°C

Measurement of ultra-thin films (10 nm to 5 µm) and
measurement of bulk material (up to 3 mm)

Application example

Interface nanocavities in poly (lactic acid) membranes with dispersed cellulose nanofibrils: Their role in the gas barrier performances

Control of vacancy-type defects in Mg implanted GaN studied by positron annihilation spectroscopy
