Fragments with different m/z are used to identify molecules on the surfaces. SIMS can also be operated in a mode where etching on the surface takes place, allowing one to obtain a composition versus depth profile. SIMS can be a complementary survey tool in addition to XPS and it can be used to differentiate samples with similar XPS spectra. 1%). SIMS can also provide more detail on chemical structure, but comparable quantitative information is only available via XPS [57,58]. Ratner et al. [59] have done detailed SIMS and XPS studies on aromatic polyurethanes with different soft segments.

The friction force is measured by a forcemeter and the normal force is the difference of gravity force of the weight subtracted by the buoyancy force. 2 Trackability measurement When a medical prosthesis such as a catheter, guide wire, angioplasty balloon, or stent is inserted to a blood vessel, external force is needed to advance the prosthesis into the right position. 2 Modified COF device for a catheter.
