Sample Preparation for SEM

Going further than standard mechanical polishing, we can ion mill or vibratory polish your samples to get the best finish and SEM images possible at the highest magnifications. Ion Milling is non-contact and can help with the most delicate of samples to prevent damage and material bleed. We have the equipment for ion mill cross-sections, flat mill samples in mounts, and cryo ion mill samples that are temperature sensitive.

Vibratory polishing reduces scratches on a sample beyond any mechanical polishing method and is used to improve finished for EBSD analysis, polish delicate samples can’t be given a scratch-free surface with a polishing wheel and multi-material samples where different characteristics make other methods of polishing difficult.
