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.
