Welcome to Sheffield Surface Analysis Centre
The SSAC is a facility based within the University of Sheffield providing access to state of the art surface analysis instrumentation for both commercial and academic research.
Our Services: In addition to our Supra Axis (XPS), Axis Ultra DLD (XPS) and TOF.SIMS5, we have facilities for carrying out atomic force microscopy (AFM), spectroscopic ellipsometry and contact angle goniometry.
Techniques available in the SSAC allow us to determine:
- elemental composition
- quantitative chemical state information
- high resolution species mapping of a contaminant or coating
- nanoscale topography and tribology
- layer thicknesses
- optical properties
Please contact us to purchase analysis time or if you have any questions relating to your samples or our services.
