Title Material Analysis through Non-Destructive Testing Services Provides Options to Industry
Introduction Advanced MicroAnalytical offers answers to complex material challenges involving everything from non-destructive physical analysis to the identification of unknown materials, product viability and quality control testing.

Salem, NH, January 14th, 2019

In countless different industries there are times when performing material analysis requires the highest amount of sensitivity, and all other considerations are irrelevant. While a complete breakdown of a device or sample can give the most information in some circumstances, there are other times when reducing the sample to its component atoms isn’t a viable option.

All too frequently, product failures may only be present due to an interaction between components, but often it simply isn’t acceptable for the sample to be altered at all, let alone destroyed. Unique, one of a kind failures, prototypes (either from manufacturing, or for reverse engineering purposes) or samples that are likely to come under legal scrutiny are all examples of samples where any alteration is likely unacceptable.

For those that need to maintain the integrity of a device or sample, Advanced MicroAnalytical offers a variety of completely non-destructive analysis options. For example, the examination of the exterior of a sample can be undertaken using a number of micro-analysis methods, including optical microscopy, DIC, polarized reflectance microscopy and SEM. This allows for extremely small features to be documented without destroying the sample. Even interior structures are capable of being examined with real-time radiographic inspection services, micro-X-ray CT and scanning acoustic microscopy. Using fluorescence, IR and Raman spectroscopy, organic features and details on the surface of a sample can be chemically analyzed, and a combination of XRF and EDS or Raman can highlight organic features.

Advanced MicroAnalytical’s experienced scientific staff are experts in the use of these types of advanced instrumentation and are familiar with the concerns of clients when it comes to maintaining the sanctity of sample integrity. Their scientists keep clients apprised of the results, maintain the contiguity of sample associated records and return the sample in the same state it was submitted. This all ensures the best non-destructive data possible.
