Sheffield Surface Analysis Centre
The Sheffield Surface Analysis Centre (SSAC) is a facility based within the University of Sheffield. We provide access to state of the art surface analysis instrumentation for both commercial and academic research.
In addition to our Supra Axis (XPS) we have facilities for carrying out atomic force microscopy (AFM) and contact angle goniometry.
Techniques available in the SSAC allow us to determine
elemental composition, at the surface and as a function of depth in the near surface region
quantitative chemical state information
nanoscale topography and tribology
