October 27, 2021 – Sunnyvale, CA. Covalent Metrology (Silicon Valley California) and Toray Research Center, Inc. (Tokyo, Japan) are partnering to deliver highly advanced analytical chemistry capabilities. Bolstering Covalent’s vast services portfolio, the partnership introduces analytical methods which will support innovators in numerous industries, including the semiconductor, battery, and polymer sectors.
Covalent Metrology is a top North American analytical services company and Toray Research Center is a leading provider of advanced research & development services. The two organizations will partner to fuel faster, more strategic research and development in client projects, advanced materials, and in the field of metrology services.
Covalent clients will benefit immediately from access to new, top-quality analytical methods such as:
- Rutherford Backscattering Spectrometry (RBS) – achieves fast, quantitative analysis of the composition of thin-films and advanced materials without the need for reference standards. This technique is accompanied by several variant testing modes, including:
- Micro-RBS: produces accurate composition analysis and depth profiles in a micron-scale region
- High-resolution RBS: generates accurate, composition analysis and depth profiles with nanometer-scale depth-resolution and high energy-resolution
- Nano-Secondary Ion Mass Spectroscopy (Nano-SIMS) – provides quantitative element analysis with high lateral resolution and sensitivity for trace species detection.
- Cathodoluminescence (CL) – probes crystal defects, stress, and chemical composition in solid samples and can accompany any other SEM analysis in situ.
By partnering with Covalent, the Toray Research Center can collaborate with Covalent’s world-class experts in tackling new challenges for method development spanning new industries and applications. Both companies will work together to push the limits of metrology services and enhance analysis speed and yielded insight.
