An Introduction to Atom Probe Tomography and Its Applications

‐ Jun 6, 2018 11:00am

Presented by Cameca Instruments, Inc.  

Used by leading institutions and organizations around the world, Atom Probe Tomography has revolutionized materials research. This webinar will provide an introduction to APT and explore its relevance and effectiveness to your research.

Atom Probe Tomography (APT) is a technique used to analyze the composition of solid materials and thin films by evaporating individual ions from the surface of the material with a voltage or laser pulse. By combining ToF mass spectrometry with 3D position information, a 3D model of the specimen can be created, providing near-atomic spatial resolution.

Optimized for localized chemical analysis, APT has been used in many applications making APT an extremely versatile technique able to support the R&D and production needs of academia, government and industry. Applications include:

  • Material and nuclear sciences
  • Semiconductor development and process control
  • Solar photovoltaic cell technology
  • Metallurgy
  • Ceramics and oxides
  • Grain boundary and cluster analysis
