Diamond Characterization

NCD Technologies is fortunate to be tightly connected with the world class UW Madison school of Engineering, allowing us to utilize the multi-million dollar Material Science Center with its top of the line surface science instrumentation. Here are some of the surface science techniques that we use:

  • Scanning electron microscope w/XRD – imaging and chemical analysis
  • RAMAN – Diamond quality and stress analysis
  • White light interferometer – roughness and form analysis
  • X-ray photon spectroscopy – Chemical analysis with mapping capabilities
  • Alicona – 3d imaging with roughness measurements
  • Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM)
  • Auger Spectroscopy
  • NanoIndentation
  • White Light INeterfermoetery (WLI)
  • Hardness Testing
  • Tribology and Wear Testing
