- No induced artifacts
- Easily adjustable flow rate, jet and specimen positions
- Reliable, accurate termination
High-quality thin foils for TEM
Electrolytic thinning of conductive materials is an effective method of quickly producing specimens for transmission electron microscopy (TEM) without any induced artifacts. In the Model 110 Twin-Jet Electropolisher, twin jets simultaneously polish both sides of the sample, creating electron transparent specimens within a few minutes. The electropolisher features easily adjustable electrolyte flow, polishing voltage, termination detection sensitivity, and jet and specimen holder positions.
The electropolisher consists of the electrolyte pump and motor, jet assemblies, specimen holder, fiber optic assemblies (including the light source and photocell detector), and a box that holds a glass dish for the electrolyte. Either the Model 120 Automatic Power Control or the Model 140 Digital Power Control provides complete electronic support for the electropolisher and alerts the user at the completion of the process.
