Thermo Fisher Scientific Introduces Escalab 250Xi
Fully Integrated X-ray Photoelectron Spectrometer for Chemical Surface Characterization

MADISON, Wis. (Nov 9, 2009) – Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, today announced the new Thermo Scientific Escalab 250Xi X-ray photoelectron spectrometer (XPS). This fully integrated surface characterization tool is designed to meet the demands of surface engineers whether working in cutting-edge research and development of new surface chemistries or dealing with routine characterization of surfaces, thin films and coatings.

The Escalab 250Xi is the latest development in the world renowned Thermo Scientific Escalab product line. The new instrument integrates premier spectrometer performance with the Thermo Scientific Avantage XPS acquisition and processing user interface. This combination of instrumentation and software combines high sample throughput with market leading analytical performance, essential for tackling the complex materials characterization needs of today’s surface analysis applications. Additionally, the integration of an advanced parallel image detection system enables quantitative spectroscopic analysis of small features within the image field of view.

The Avantage Data System offers exceptional levels of productivity via an optimized workflow that guides analysts through data acquisition, interpretation, processing and report generation. Avantage offers full digital tool control while providing a comprehensive range of XPS spectrum and image processing routines. Customized laboratory reporting templates allow analysis reports to be easily exported to standard PC applications, such as Microsoft® Office, at the click of a mouse.

The Escalab 250Xi platform flexibility enables analysts to configure the system with a range of other surface characterization techniques. Ion scattering spectroscopy (ISS) and reflection electron energy loss spectroscopy (REELS) are provided with the instrument while ultra violet photoelectron spectroscopy (UPS) and Auger electron spectroscopy (AES) are available as options. A sample preparation chamber is provided with the instrument as standard. Where required, the system can be expanded with a selection of sample preparation options and additional experimental chambers.
