  • Full Description

The Leica ACE600 is a high vacuum thin film deposition instrument for FE-SEM and TEM sample preparation.  It can produce carbon films as thin as 1.4nm or deposit fine-grained metal films to improve e-beam analysis of non-electrically conductive samples.  It can also be used to glow discharge TEM grids.  This is not a fabrication tool and cannot be used to produce films over 20nm of thickness.
