Silicon Dioxide 20nm TEM Squares 9 Windows, (8) 50x50um + (1) 50x100um
Silicon Dioxide ultrathin film TEM grids offer high resolution imaging of prepared samples. Nanometer thick films have minimal electronic interference and provide lower background signal than comparable carbon grids. This allows clearer resolution of imaged samples. Additionally, the films are robust enough to withstand repeated plasma cleanings, harsh deposition and chemical conditions, and high temperatures (tolerates temperatures to 1000°C). Surprisingly strong for their thinness, silicon dioxide TEM grids provide a highly favorable balance between resolution and robustness. Also offers the ability to analyze for nitrogen by EDX techniques. Our oxide films are pure stochiometric SiO2, as they are prepared by sputtering from a high quality SiO2 target in a dilute oxygen ambient.
