EM-09100IS Ion Slicer


The Ion Slicer can prepare thin-film specimens without solvents or chemicals and requires no prior treatment of the specimen other than rectangular slicing (no disc grinding or dimple grinding).

Thin-film specimens are prepared faster and easier than conventional preparation tools. A low-energy, low-angle Ar ion beam irradiates the specimen while a thin shield belt allows low-angle irradiation of the Ar ion beam (from 0° to 6°), drastically reducing ion-beam irradiation damage to the specimen. The result is a high-quality thin film with few sputtering artifacts–even in soft materials. The Ion Slicer can efficiently prepare thin films from specimens having different compositions, even those having porous composites.
