Precision Etching and Coating System. This system is used to etch or slope cut a specimen. Just like a cut that is possible with a FIB. Only this cut will be have sample size width. After cutting or stand alone a coating can be applied to the sample. Carbon / Chromium can be deposited on the samples with controlled layer thickness, down to Angstrom size. Includes a Film Thickness Monitor for accurate control of film thickness
The sample size can be around 1x1x1 cm.
For the cleaning of specimen or small instruments.The cleaner uses ultrasonic energy (40 kHz) in the form of sound waves to create millions of tiny microscopic bubbles in the solution that even works its way into holes and hidden cavities, loosening dirt on all surfaces that the solution touches. These actions, called cavitation occurs thousands of times per second to gently yet thoroughly scrub contaminations off the article being cleaned. When you lift the item out of the cleaner, it’s microscopically clean.
