Sputter Coater

The Q150RES system is a versatile sputter coater/carbon evaporator for preparing specimens for examination by electron microscopy. This tool is strictly for the use of coating thin films of material in order to minimizing charging effects during SEM imaging. The sputter coating assembly is designated for coating thin gold/palladium (60/40) films (~5nm) per run. This assembly can be interchanged with a carbon fiber evaporation set up for carbon films up to 20 nm of thickness per run.
