X-ray Analysis


X-ray analysis can reveal a sample’s chemical composition and assess numerous structural properties of crystalline, semicrystalline, or amorphous materials. The diversity of x-ray techniques makes them widely suited for analysis in the research and development of semiconductors, photovoltaics, pharmaceuticals, and other advanced material technologies.

Covalent supplies a range of services to support your work with x-ray characterization: with x-ray diffraction (XRD), analysts can measure offcut and residual stress, generate reciprocal space maps, characterize crystal structure, and more; X-ray reflectometry (XRR) can be used to analyze thickness and interfacial roughness of multilayer thin films; X-ray spectroscopy methods – such as x-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectroscopy – provide relative elemental composition; and x-rays can be used in 2D and 3D imaging via digital x-ray radiography and micro-computed tomography (micro-CT).

Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectroscopy
Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectroscopy (WDXRF)
In Chemical Analysis,X-ray Analysis
Base Price: $400 per Hour

Wavelength dispersive x-ray fluorescence spectroscopy (WDXRF or WDX) is a non-contact, non-destructive technique used to measure elemental composition, elemental concentration per unit area, and film thickness. Due to its acute element sensitivity, it is particularly useful for identifying trace elements.

X-ray Computed Tomography
X-ray Computed Tomography (Micro-CT)
In Microscopy & Imaging,X-ray Analysis,Failure Analysis
Base Price: $400 per Hour

X-ray computed tomography (often referred to as Micro-CT due to its spatial resolution) is a non-contact, nondestructive 2D / 3D imaging technique used to capture morphology and topography at the micron scale of the exterior and interior of the sample. Covalent uses the best-in-class benchtop Micro-CT instrument, the CT Lab HX130; this is the only HX130 system available for service in North America outside of Rigaku Corp.

X-ray Diffraction
X-ray Diffraction (XRD)
In X-ray Analysis
Base Price: $380 per Sample

X-ray Diffraction (XRD) is a nondestructive analytical technique which can be used to measure both physical and chemical properties of crystalline powders, thin films, epitaxial films, and bulk solid materials. At Covalent, we use the newest in XRD technology, utilizing a high-brilliance Rotating Anode Cu source, Hypix-3000 Hybrid Pixel Array detector, and a variety of high-resolution optics.

X-ray Reflectometry
X-ray Reflectometry (XRR)
In Material Testing,X-ray Analysis
Base Price: $500 per Sample

X-ray Reflectometry (XRR) is a non-contact, non-destructive x-ray characterization technique suitable for both amorphous and crystalline materials. It provides refined film thicknesses, densities, and interfacial roughness determinations for film stacks whose approximate chemistries and thicknesses are known.
