Surface Characterization

Every surface is different, from topography to chemical composition, and determining the characteristics of a surface is no small accomplishment.  In numerous applications such as clean energy to medical devices, ensuring proper function can be related to accurate surface characterization.  Many materials require accurate monitoring during development to produce the desired results.
