Typical fields of Applications

  • Measurement of functional coatings in the electronics and semiconductor industry, e. g. coating thickness measurement of gold coatings down to 2 nm
  • Analysis of thin and very thin coatings in the electronics and semiconductor industry, e. g. gold/palladium coatings of โ‰ค 0.1 ยตm
  • Determination of complex multilayer systems
  • Measurement of hard material coatings
  • Coating thickness measurement in the photovoltaics industry
  • Trace analysis of hazardous substances such as lead and cadmium according to RoHS, WEEE, CPSIA and other directives for electronics, packaging and consumer goods

  • Direct determination of the phosphorus content in functional NiP coatings

The high-caliber all-rounder

The FISCHERSCOPEยฎ X-RAY XDVยฎ-SDD is one of the most powerful X-ray fluorescence instruments in the Fischer portfolio . This XRF spectrometer is equipped with a high-resolution and powerful silicon drift detector (SDD) with an effective area of 50 mmยฒ. This allows you to measure even the thinnest layers precisely and non-destructively โ€“ e. g. gold coatings about 2 nm thick on lead frames. 

In combination with the new in-house developed digital pulse processor DPP+, you can boost your measurements performance to a new level. Even higher count rates can now be processed, resulting in shorter measuring times or improved repeatability of your measurement results.

At the same time, the XDV-SDD is perfectly suited for non-destructive material analysis. For example, its detection sensitivity for traces of lead in plastic is about 2 ppm โ€“ several orders of magnitude lower than the values required by RoHS or CPSIA. To create ideal conditions for each XRF coating thickness measurement, the XDV-SDD has changeable collimators and primary filters, which allows working on a scientific level. The extremely robust device with its intuitive control panel is easy to operate via a joystick and buttons, and is designed specifically for series tests in industrial use.

Prior to hallmarking, for high sample volumes or large test parts: Measure gold content quickly and reliably

Reliably examine alloys or precious metals for the finest differences with the new FISCHERSCOPEยฎ X-RAY XDVยฎ-SDD. Obtain highly precise analyses, on the basis of which you can make reliable statements about the value of gold bars, coins or jewelry.
