Tof-SIMS – Time-of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry Services Company

Time of Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry is a very sensitive surface analysis technology, by exciting the sample surface with primary ions, punching out extremely small amounts of secondary ions, according to the time of secondary ions flying to the detector due to different masses to determine ion mass, with extremely high-resolution measurement technology.

It can be widely used in physics, chemistry, microelectronics, biology, pharmaceutical, spatial analysis and other industrial and research aspects.

TOF-SIMS is used to analyse surfaces, films, interfaces, and even 3D samples for elements, molecules, and structures. It focuses on the very top layer (up to 1nm) to gather chemical information without damaging the sample. Its small analysis area and depth make it ideal for use in physics, chemistry, microelectronics, biology, pharmaceuticals, spatial analysis, and more.

Material Characterization

Using TOF-SIMS for material characterization provides a profound understanding of materials at the most fundamental level.

This technique is adept at identifying chemical states and mapping distributions at both surface and near-surface regions.

The process involves bombarding a sample with a focused primary ion beam and analyzing the ejected secondary ions.

The results furnish detailed information on the chemical composition, including insights into the spatial distribution of elements and molecular fragments.

These insights are crucial for applications where surface properties significantly influence material performance.

Quantitative and Qualitative Analysis

Our TOF-SIMS analysis services provide both quantitative and qualitative insights into the elemental, molecular, and structural composition of materials.

The quantitative analysis offers precise measurements of elemental and molecular concentrations at the surface, while the qualitative analysis reveals the presence of various compounds and their spatial distribution.

These capabilities enable a comprehensive understanding of the material’s surface and near-surface chemistry, facilitating advancements in research and development, quality control, and failure analysis across a spectrum of industries.

Application Advantages

The analysis capabilities provided by concentrations of boron-phosphorus arsenic at 1E5 atoms per cubic centimetre and hydrocarbon oxygen at 1E16 atoms per cubic centimetre, using silicon as a reference and an electronic neutralization gun solution for charge compensation, are adequate for addressing mixed content and impurity analysis requirements. The specific applications include:

  1. TOF-SIMS is the methodology of choice for analyzing minuscule foreign particles on a product’s surface when standard analytical techniques fail to offer precise qualitative and quantitative identification. It is effective for particles with a component size of 10μm or larger.
  2. For instances where the product’s surface layer is excessively thin, rendering traditional analytical methods ineffective, TOF-SIMS offers a reliable alternative for qualitative analysis of the layer’s composition.
  3. In situations where unidentified foreign materials are detected on the product’s surface, TOF-SIMS provides a comprehensive analytical solution, capable of identifying both the elemental and molecular structures of the contaminants, including organic compounds.
  4. When issues like layer separation or delamination occur within the interface of the film layer and substrate without visible foreign material, TOF-SIMS can evaluate the trace materials on the surface. This assessment helps in determining the presence of external contaminants within the section, with sensitivity levels reaching down to parts per million.

TOF-SIM High-Resolution Surface Analysis

Time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (TOF-SIMS) considerations

  1. The sample’s maximum dimensions should not exceed 1×1×0.5 cm. If the sample is larger than these dimensions, it must be cut down to an appropriate size for analysis.
  2. During sampling, it is crucial to avoid any direct contact between the sampling tools or hands and the area being tested. After extracting the sample, it should be sealed in vacuum packaging or another type of container that protects it from external contaminants to preserve the integrity of the analysis.
  3. The conductivity of the sample does not restrict TOF-SIMS testing; thus, even insulating materials are suitable for examination.
  4. The scope of TOF-SIMS elemental analysis spans from hydrogen to uranium, covering various elements and their molecular states in both organic and inorganic substances, with a detection sensitivity at the parts per million level.
