Sputter System 2 - Au

The HUMMER SPUTTERING SYSTEM is used to sputter a thin layer of gold metal onto the samples for imaging by scanning electron microscope or scanning transmission electron microscope.

  • The thin layer is conductive, good for improving the quality of images from non-conductive samples.
  • The gold thin layer can be used as internal standard in the measurements of electron diffraction patterns.
  • The thickness is controllable by setting sputtering time
