Analyses of Thin Film and Surface Treatment
Functionalities of thin film materials and surface treatment materials (friction, sliding, press property, corrosion resistance, color, electronic physical property, magnetic property, optical characteristics, etc.) vary depending on the surface treatment, surface structure and film structure of thin film, and the interface structure. JFE-TEC provides structure analysis techniques necessary for material design and failure analysis.
Film and Surface
We investigate the crystalline morphology of surface treatment and thin film, coating state through section observation, composition and chemical state of lamination through observation, and the crystalline phase and orientation and then analyze the change of film after use, deterioration, and evaluation of functionalities.
Interface (Surface Treatment/Thin Film, Base Material/Substrate), Multilayer Structure, Alloy Layer, Diffusion Layer, and Reaction
We analyze the multilayer interface of surface treatment film, thin film, alloy layer, reaction layer, and the diffusion layer of interface morphology of the base material.
