Elastic recoil detection analysis

  • Nondestructively and simultaneously determines hydrogen isotopes (H and D) and their depth profiles in polymers and other solids with a sensitivity of 0.01 at.%, a depth resolution of 5-20 nm, and a maximum depth of 1 micron.
  • Measurements of other light elements (Z<9) are also possible if heavy ions like Cl or Au are used.
