Oxygen/Nitrogen Determination in Nitrides

The determination of oxygen and nitrogen in nitrides is a quick and direct measurement of nitride purity. Analysis results can be used for the purpose of quality control or material grading. For example, the three materials analyzed in this note—silicon nitride (Si3 N4), titanium nitride (TiN), and boron nitride (BN)—have known ratios of nitrogen to Si/Ti/B based upon their composition.
