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.
The Model 130 Specimen Punch prepares high-quality
The Model 220 Low Temp Container allows the
Electropolisher to be used at cryogenic temperatures.
