NIST Traceable Standards

CES has the unique ability to generate NIST-traceable thin film standards for a variety of inorganic species. The standards are NIST-traceable through the use of CES’ Quantitative Aerosol Generator. The standards have the potential to then be validated using an X-Ray Fluorescence instrument that is traceable to NIST standards (SRM 1832, 1833 and 2708). Single and multi-element standards can be composed, being used as reference spectra standards, and quantitative calibration and audit standards.

The preparation of the Standards creates a deposit that is highly uniform over the entire deposit surface. Standards can be provided in 25, 37 and 47mm sizes typically, but can be custom sized if needed. Concentrations can range from ng/cm2 to mg/cm2. For more information please inquire at
