30 years of design, development and manufacture of quadrupole mass spectrometers
Precision gas analysis, plasma diagnostics by direct measurement of plasma ions and ion energies, SIMS probes for UHV surface science, catalysis performance quantification, thermo-gravimetric studies.
Excellence that is based on four guiding principles:
- Technology: By working in partnership with customers continue to develop, and bring to manufacture, leading edge products which in turn will increase our customer's analytical capability and enhance the quality of their products.
- Product Design: Continually design products with ever increasing standards of technology and quality which extend the technical capability of our customers.
- People: Encourage all Hiden personnel to grow in customer awareness towards our goal of Total Customer Satisfaction.
- Continuous Improvement: Achieve measurable continuous improvements in all aspects of the Scientific Instrument business - strive for perfection in product and operation.
Hiden Analytical manufactures quadrupole mass spectrometers
Our quadrupole mass spectrometers are available with mass range options up to 2500amu, providing for analysis of the widest variety of organic, metal organic and inorganic compounds.
Our quadrupoles provide analysis of :
Residual gases and vapours in vacuum and ultra high vacuum
Gases and vapour in vacuum process, in process at pressures up to atmospheric pressure, and in processes with pressure up to 30bar
Volatile organic vapours
Metal organic vapours
Dissolved species in liquids
Plasma ions, neutrals and radicals
Secondary ions in SIMS surface analysis
Species analysed as ions, positive and negative, neutral and neutral radical species
How we analyse :
Advanced mass spectrometric techniques coupled with sampling systems that enable sensitive, stable and high resolution results
Capillary inlet - Quartz inert capillary-QIC
Multiple stream analysis
Direct orifice sampling
Molecular beam supersonic sampling
Cross beam source sampling
Solid insertion probe
Dissolved species probe
Custom engineered systems for special applications
What the results tell us :
Species identification in conjunction with library database information
Quantitative partial pressure measurement
Accurate Quantitative gas composition measurement
Trend analysis - transients analysed at millisecond rates, time resolved measurements in pulsed processes measured in the microsecond time frame
Concentration of dissolved gases in liquids
Direct analysis of vapour/solid interactions
End point detection in ion beam etch applications
Depth profile information from our SIMS analysers
Elemental mapping and surface imaging from our SIMS analysers
Static SIMS for surface contamination analysis
