Raman Spectroscopy makes use of the interaction between a light source--usually in the form of laser--and the molecular vibrations or rotations or other types of molecular movement set off in a specimen from that light so as to create information about the chemical and physical nature of that specimen. It is particularly useful in determining the nature of chemical bonds and the symmetry of molecules. This is the first volume of a two volume set on the background and principles of Raman Spectroscopy and its special applications.

Time of flight secondary ion mass spectrometry, TOF-SIMS, is a highly surface sensitive analytical technique that provides information about composition with submicron lateral resolution. For select materials, TOF-SIMS provides unparalleled sensitivity along with excellent reproducibility, and as a mass spectrometric technique, it also provides excellent specificity. Of the analytical methods available, it is among the most surface sensitive, but the physical principles that underlie it are also the least understood.

Transmission electron microscope (TEM) is a very powerful tool for characterizing various types of materials. Using a light microscope, the imaging resolution is at several hundred nanometers, and for a scanning electron microscope at several nanometers. The imaging resolution of the TEM, however, can routinely reach several angstroms on a modem instrument. In addition, the TEM can also provide material structural information, since the electrons penetrate through the thin specimens, and chemical compositional information due to the strong electron specimen atom interactions.

This book discusses the use of AES and SAM for the characterization of a wide range of technological materials. These include metals and alloys, semiconductors, nanostructures, and insulators. Its value as a tool for high-resolution elemental imaging and compositional depth profiling is illustrated. The application of the technique for obtaining compositional information from the surfaces, interfaces, and thin film structures of technological and engineering materials is demonstrated.

Secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) is a mass spectrometric technique for solid materials that can provide elemental analysis at parts per million sensitivity and lateral resolution of 50 nm. When those capabilities are combined with the ability to provide that analysis as a function of depth, SIMS has proved to be a valued technique for a wide range of applications.
