Study Uses Bowman’s P Series XRF System

March, 2022 – Experiments and published articles on various topics related to materials science often use Bowman XRF systems for precise plating thickness measurements and plating bath analysis.

Most recently, a notable study titled “Optimisation of Thiourea Concentration in a Decorative Copper Plating Acid Bath Based on Methanesulfonic Electrolyte” used a Bowman P Series XRF system. Like all Bowman XRF instruments, the P Series uses a solid state detector for highest resolution, low baseline noise and high overall stability. The study was published by Coatings, a peer-reviewed journal of coatings and surface engineering published monthly by MDPI.
