Next generation EM-Tec silicon nitride TEM support membranes
Micro to Nano reveals its next generation EM-Tec silicon nitride support films for TEM with interesting and innovative improvements.
To greatly improve handling, the silicon support frame has been shaped into a 3.05 mm compatible hexagon with micro-structured TrueGrip edges. One side of the hexagon includes a reference notch to for sample location during processing and loading. Chemistry has been further improved to produce stress-optimized films, resulting in robust and ultra-planar silicon nitride films. Manufacturing of the EM-Tec silicon nitride films include a proprietary cleaning process to deliver clean, debris free films. Available with several windows sizes and membrane thicknesses of 20, 50 and 200 nm.
