  • Morphology & Size Analysis

    The morphology of materials is an important part of material analysis, and many physical and chemical properties of materials are determined by their morphological characteristics. Material properties are not only important to the size of the material particles but also to the morphology of the material. Therefore, the observation and analysis of the microstructure is essential for understanding the nature of the material.

    The main content of morphology analysis is to analyze the geometric morphology, particle size and particle size distribution of the material, as well as the composition and phase structure of the micro area of the morphology.

    As a professional reliability third-party testing organization, T,C&A Lab's Morphology & Size Analysis Laboratory can perform a full range of analysis services according to ISO, ASTM and other standards as well as industry requirements. Welcome to contact our experts for consultation.

    Our techniques for material morphology analysis

    Optical Microscopy (OM)

    Optical Microscopy (OM)

    Not only the surface tissue of the sample can be observed, but also the tissue below the surface layer can also be observed. Often used for appearance inspection and size measurement.


    Scanning Electron Microscope/ Energy Dispersive Spectrometer (SEM/EDS)

    Observation of material structure and morphology, such as fracture microscopic morphology observation, coating surface morphology observation, micron-level coating thickness measurement, powder particle surface observation, material crystal grain, grain boundary observation, etc.


    Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM)

    Transmission electron microscopy has high spatial resolution capabilities, and is particularly suitable for the analysis of nano-powder materials. Its characteristic is that the amount of sample used is small, not only the morphology, particle size, and distribution of the sample can be obtained, but also the element composition and phase structure information of a specific area can be obtained.


    Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM)

    Mainly for the morphology analysis of some special conductive solid samples. It can reach atomic level resolution, but it is only suitable for morphology analysis and surface atomic structure distribution analysis of conductive film materials, and cannot be used for the analysis of nano powder materials.


    Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM)

    It can be used to analyze the morphology of nano films, and the resolution can reach tens of nanometers, which is worse than STM, but it is suitable for conducting and non-conducting samples, not suitable for the morphology analysis of nano powders.


    Auger Electron Spectroscopy (AES)

    It can be used for defect analysis, particle analysis, surface analysis, small area depth profile, process control and film composition analysis.
