Surface Characterization

Surface characterization instruments measure physical, mechanical and chemical parameters of an interface such as thin films and coatings. These instruments are used to measure optical properties, film thickness, composition, morphology and other parameters related to surface analysis.

HORIBA provides a wide range of surface characterization instruments including:


These instruments are used over a broad range of market such as:

  • Material Sciences for nanomaterials, graphene, quantum dots
  • Semiconductor for display technology, light emitting diodes, data storage
  • Energy for battery, photovoltaics cells
