Trace Analysis - SIMS, ToFSIMS and ICPMS
Trace analysis enables us to detect impurities in very low concentrations and can play a vital part in your quality control procedure. It is important in the production of semiconductor devices because even trace quantities of contamination can reduce the yield or even cause it to fail.
Trace analysis from SGS offers a trusted specialized service as a fundamental part of your quality control manufacturing. Our experienced staff work with high-performance equipment to pinpoint trace impurities that could cause your product to malfunction or could reduce the reliability. We carry out highly sensitive test procedures using:
- Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS) – identifies impurities in very low concentrations
- Time-of-Flight SIMS (ToF–SIMS) – detects surface impurities
- Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectroscopy (ICPMS) supported by vapor phase decomposition (VPD) or pack-extraction method (PEM) – highly sensitive to a wide range of elements
