Surface Coating / Alfa Chemistry

Sophisticated Analytical Instrument Facilities


Alfa Chemistry is a research institute that specializes in coating material analysis. We are planning to equip researchers with precision analytical instrument facilities so that their institutes will not be able to access these instruments. We offer world-class capabilities in vibration and X-ray spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, light scattering, and other areas, as well as experienced technical counseling to help researchers solve their most difficult research problems.

The Goal of Alfa Chemistry

Alfa Chemistry conducts high-impact research through the most advanced infrastructure. We provide sophisticated analytical instrument facility services for scientists from academic institutions, R&D laboratories, and industries, enabling them to perform analysis and testing of coating R&D work. The pursuit of excellence in research requires the latest innovative technologies across disciplines. This is why we have core research facilities.

Alfa Chemistry's research facilities provide high-end research infrastructure and provide a series of related services to assist researchers in professional applications. We bring together a large number of researchers from disciplines such as materials chemistry and analytical chemistry and provide a means to better manage and maintain high-end research infrastructure for high-quality research.

Learn About Our Instrument Facilities

Vibration and X-Ray Spectroscopy

Alfa Chemistry has a wide range of professional instruments and sampling accessories for simple point spectroscopy or complex chemical/biological mapping and imaging.

Scattering and Diffraction

Alfa Chemistry provides professional capabilities for sample analysis through X-ray and light scattering and X-ray diffraction crystallography.

Microscope Analysis Technology

From optical microscopes to high-resolution scanning electron microscopes (SEM), our experts can analyze the smallest details. We can obtain a large amount of chemical information by applying confocal Raman mapping and SEM and energy dispersive X-ray analysis (EDX) techniques to surfaces, residues, products, and processes.

Ellipsometer and Contact Angle

X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, low-energy electron diffraction, and Auger electron spectroscopy are all common approaches for studying surfaces. Regrettably, these methods necessitate the purchase of pricey ultra-high vacuum (UHV) chambers. Environmental analysis is prohibited by the requirement for UHV, and these technologies are also excluded from undergraduate courses. Fortunately, single-layer molecules may be detected using some environmental technology. The Alfa Chemistry laboratory will investigate the interface using external reflectance infrared spectroscopy, ellipsometry, and contact angle.

These techniques are sensitive enough to study interfaces with only a single layer thickness, but they can also work under common laboratory conditions.
