Synthesis / Preparation

Ion Mills

For TEM sample preparation two ion mills can be used at the institute.

The GATAN® PIPS™ combines precise and very fast thinning of samples for TEM inspection. It can be operatied under liquid nitrogen temperature for sensitive samples and under low-voltage conditions for surface cleaning.

The Technoorg-Linda(R) GentleMill(TM) is used for final thinning of FIB-prepared lamellae.
