Anderson Materials Evaluation is an independent materials analysis laboratory established in 1995 offering materials testing, failure analysis, quality control, materials verification, manufacturing problem-solving, and materials and process research and development services. We also consult and provide expert witness services based on our laboratory materials analysis results.

We offer expert XPS surface analysis, thermal analysis, optical and electron microscopy, infrared absorption spectroscopy, corrosion analysis and electrochemistry, gas chromatography-mass spectroscopy, x-ray emission spectroscopy, UV-visible light spectrophotometry and reflectivity measurements, wavelength-dispersive x-ray fluorescence spectrometry, mechanical testing, and residual gas mass spectroscopy services for materials analysis ranging from nanomaterials through surface treatments, thin films and coatings, to bulk materials. Our materials analysis laboratory has extensive experience with metal, polymer, other organic, inorganic compound, mineral, ceramic, glass, semiconductor, and composite materials analyses performed for virtually any industry that uses materials.

Our Ph.D. materials scientists and chemists specialize in custom and innovative analyses to solve your most stubborn and complex materials challenges. Our materials analysis laboratory is available to augment your existing materials analysis and R&D capabilities by performing analyses not available to many companies in-house. With intelligent planning of an analytical investigation, we efficiently maximize your understanding, while minimizing your expenses. It is our aim to explain the analysis results in a manner that helps to address your materials challenges and problems. Our analysis reports are thorough in explaining how we obtained our results, providing the results, educating you about materials and their properties, and in explaining how these results address any problems you have shared information on with us. We are happy to provide our customers with non-disclosure agreements when that enables us to better address the materials challenges that you face.

Based in the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area, our materials analysis laboratory provides independent analytical knowledge and advice for a broad spectrum of commercial applications and market sectors. Each project is managed by at least one of our Ph.D. scientists. Our materials analysis laboratory has served many of the most respected organizations in industry and academia, as well as start-up, small, and medium-sized businesses, each of whose success is critically important to us.
