Material and Oxide Characterization

The aim of this work package is to characterize the welds, and the oxides. The microstructure of the welds will be characterized and a visual inspection of all produced welds will be done to define the level of discoloration.

Composition, thickness and type of oxide will be evaluated using :
  • Glow Discharge Optical Emission Spectroscopy (GDOES)
  • Small-Spot X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS)
  • Scanning Auger Electron Spectroscopy (AES)
The semi-conducting properties of the oxide will be defined using:
  • Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS)
  • Scanning Kelvin Probe (SKP) (MPIE)
