X-tool - Automated XPS
The NEW PHI X-tool - Automated XPS Microprobe
The PHI X-tool is the newest member of PHI’s suite of XPS instruments that also includes the PHIQuantera II and PHI VersaProbe II. The X-tool is designed to make XPS instrumentation accessible to a larger audience. An intuitive touch screen user interface, automatic sample loading, automatic analysis, and automatic report generation removes the requirement to be a surface analysis expert to perform XPS measurements.
Based on PHI’s patented scanning XPS microprobe technology, the X-tool provides a robust environment for performing routine small and large area XPS measurements.
In the automatic mode of operation a turnkey recipe driven analysis capability for repetitive analysis tasks or process monitoring is provided.
In the interactive mode of operation, the user can define analysis conditions and guide an interactive research or failure analysis oriented analysis session. Analysis capabilities include: small and large area spectroscopy, XPS mapping, and sputter depth profiling. An internal optical microscope and x-ray beam induced secondary electron imaging are available to guide the selection of areas for analysis.
If your XPS application is centered around repetitive analysis tasks or the need to make XPS available to a large group of users, the X-tool was designed for you.
