Fischione 1040 Nanomill

The Fischione 1040 is a state-of-the-art low energy (50 – 2000V) Argon ion mill.  The Argon beam (10-12mm beam size) is rastered on the region of interest at relatively low angles (0-15).  The imaging capability allows the user to focus on the sample area minimizing cross-contamination from surrounding materials.  The primary use of the instrument is to remove surface artifacts on TEM samples such as amorphous damage layers.
