Hiden’s quadrupole mass spectrometers provide vacuum, plasma and surface analysis in nanotechnology applications, including SIMS depth profiling of nanometre scale thin film structures, plasma characterisation for enhancement of device etch processes, and vacuum diagnostics / temperature programmed desorption analysers in UHV scanning tunnelling microscopes.

Hiden Analytical was founded in 1981 and is presently situated in a 2,130m2 manufacturing plant in Warrington, England with a staff of 60. As a privately owned company our reputation is built on creating close and positive relationships with our clients. Many of these customers are working at the forefront of new technology - in the fields of plasma research, surface science, vacuum processing and gas analysis. To maintain this reputation we have, over the years, established exceptional levels of technical expertise in these areas within our company.

Hiden Analytical is committed to providing systems which meet specifications of both new and existing clients, but further, enable the advancement of their work, whether it be pure research or the improvements or monitoring of products and process performance. We have a common vision, not only to supply the systems and instruments with first class performance specifications, long term reliability and professional service support, but also, and in many cases more importantly, to maintain close contact to ensure that our systems provide all that our customers expect, and more, from their investment in our organisation.

The Hiden Analytical UHV surface analysis system range is further extended by the addition of ‘MAXIM’, a high-performance quadrupole secondary ion monitor specifically designed for optimum sensitivity for surface analysis and depth profiling applications for a wide range of materials including polymers, superconductors, semiconductors, alloys and dielectric, with measurement of trace components to sub-ppm levels.
