NanoBasic Grids: Hydrophilic, standard use microscopy grid; 100 x 100µm, 25 nm thickness; Pack
NanoBasic™ Grids are non-functionalized, hydrophilic SMART Grids micro-fabricated from thin silicon wafers. Thermally-grown electron transparent SiO2 membrane windows provide an ultra-low background for high resolution nanoscale imaging.
Our NanoBasic grids accommodate a wide range of sample preparation methods including drop-casting, self-assembly, and aerosol deposition of nanomaterials. Surface hydroxyl groups create a hydrophilic surface that easily wets aqueous solutions. Thin films can be directly deposited onto the SiO2 surface. NanoBasic grids can be chemically treated or heated to 1000°C offering the unparalleled capability of multi-step processing and correlative analysis.
- Window Size: 100 x 100 µm
- Thickness: 25 mm
- Package of 10
NanoBasic™ Grids provide a high performance, general utility platform to prepare samples for virtually all nanomaterials including metals and ceramics, polymer materials, and carbons.
The standard grid configuration is a 3 mm x 100 micron thick disk with 25 nm thick SiO2 membranes. SMART Grids are also available with 75 nm membranes and as membraneless frames.
