Interactive Thin Film Selection Guide

Aug 21 2018 Read 587 Times

Chemplex® has been deeply involved in developing thin-film sample supports since 1971. There are many aspects that are considered in determining which thin film is proper choice for a particular application which include chemical resistance to sample attack, tensile strength and transmittance values. Resulting from our extensive experience in thin-film sample supports, we have created the following simple three-step approach to thin-film selection.

  1. Chemical resistance: Select a thin-film based on its chemical resistance to the sample being analysed.
  2. Percent transmittance: Determine the thin-film’s thickness resulting the highest percent transmittance values, or lowest x-ray absorption, at the analyte lines of interest.
  3. Thin-film configuration: Choose a thin-film format that is most convenient for your application.

Chemplex® has taken this simple three step approach and developed an interactive Windows application which will aid the user in filtering, sorting and selecting the best thin-film for their particular application. You can explore and compare the different thin-films and their percent transmittance at various energies.

This exciting FREE Windows application can be found on the Chemplex® website Simply download the .ZIP file, extract its contents and run the Setup.exe file.
