Observation of Camera Lens Assembly Status (X-ray CT)

inspeXio SMX-225CT X-Ray Computed Tomography System

When CT images of digital camera lenses are obtained, the CT images often include lens artifacts that make it difficult to observe the assembly status. However, this problem can be solved by modifying the orientation of the lens being scanned by the CT system. This example describes the use of a Shimadzu microfocus X-ray CT system to observe a digital camera lens.

Metal Migration on Printed Circuit Boards

Electron Probe Microanalyzer

Foreign matter on printed circuit board patterns was analyzed using an electron probe microanalyzer (EPMA). It can be seen that copper has migrated from the cathode (negative) to the anode (positive). A distribution of chlorine (Cl) can also be confirmed at almost the same position as the copper (Cu).

Silicon Chip (Die) 3-Point Bending Test

Universal Testing Machines

Before measuring life time properties it is also important to measure the particle size distribution from the additive material, this can be measured with SALD-2300. Measurements in a range from 17 nm up to 2500 µm. With the rise of metal powder-based additive manufacturing and its acceptance for critical applications, it has become important to understand the behavior of the raw materials used in different AM Techniques.

UV Degradation Analysis of Material for Solar Cell Modules Using GC/MS and FTIR

 GCMS-QP2020 NX

This article introduces three example analyses: analysis of EVA film subjected to intense UV irradiation using a UV (ultraviolet) -Py (double-shot pyrolyzer) / GC-MS (gas chromatograph mass spectrometer) system, evolved gas analysis by mass spectrometry (EGA-MS) of EVA film which was degraded by UV irradiation in the same way as with the above, and analysis of the same using a Fourier transform infrared spectrophotometer (FTIR).
