The nanoEM system is the first electron microscopy coating tool with a full, research-grade feature set.


Electron microscopy coating

The units include stainless-steel chambers, turbomolecular pumping systems, water-cooled circular magnetrons for continuous operation, and a precision sputtering power supply (DC; up to 300 W) as standard, all in a space-saving benchtop package.

Ease-of-use and coating speed are built in for routine preparation of TEM/SEM samples (e.g., with sputtering of gold and/or carbon), but with high-end components and compatibility with conventional targets, the possibilities are endless.
