DESKTOP CARBON COATERS

SEM/TEM Preparation Carbon Coater, Low and high vacuum systems

Sample preparation using Carbon coating is the recognised method for non-conductive and low conductive specimens or samples.
The DCT system is a versatile carbon evaporator for preparing specimens for electron microscopy or EDXA analysis. It has been designed as a high-current power supply capable of evaporating both carbon rod and carbon fibre. In other words, it can coat carbon on different types of substrates for X-Ray analysis and coating conducting carbon fibre & rod for SEM analysis.
The excellent design of the system enables the user to easily load and unload samples, and quickly replace the carbon fibre/rod. The system is equipped with a film thickness monitor (FTM), which measures the coating thickness on a quartz crystal mounted in the vacuum chamber with an accuracy of 1 nm. The system can automatically terminate a coating cycle when the required thickness or time has been achieved..
The compact and easy to use carbon coater, has the option of using existing pumps or supplied with a pump.
For external pumping the on board computer controls the pump or pumping rig.
Larger samples can be accommodated with our increased vacuum chamber DCR-L and DCT-L system
Carbon Coating
Due to its excellent transparency and good electrical conductivity, deposited carbon thin films are widely used for either electron microscopy (EM) or X-ray microanalysis applications such as:
• support films for TEM (high vacuum (HV) evaporation)
• conductive films for SEM/EDS samples (low vacuum evaporation)
• conductive surface films for non-conductive microprobe samples (HV evaporation)
• conductive surface films for non-conductive EBSD samples (HV evaporation)
• conductive surface films for non-conductive FESEM samples (HV evaporation)
• conductive surface films for non-conductive FIB samples (HV evaporation)
Our board computer integration makes the Desktop Sputter coater an ideal laboratory and research tool for scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and Tunnelling electron microscopy analysis(TEM).
Thin films of about 5 nm (50Å) are used for particle support and as an isolating layer in autoradiography. Thicker films are also used in SEM and X-Ray Microanalysis. In general, deposited thin films should be uniformed with fine grain sizes and reproducible film thickness.
Carbon rod and carbon fibre are the two widely used sources for carbon evaporation in laboratories around the word. They each have their own features that make them of specific interests to the users. For a better understanding, further details of these features are presented in the following sections.

Carbon Rod versus Carbon Fibre Evaporation

Evaporating carbon thread or a pre-shaped carbon rod are both common methods to evaporate carbon. Using pre-shaped rods with the correct control system (pulse, continuous and auto) delivers a high quality carbon layer and also gives good control over the thickness of the carbon layer. However, some users prefer to use carbon fibre because it has a faster and simpler process comparing with carbon rod.

Compact Desktop Carbon Coater

Desk Carbon Coater is a compact carbon fiber coating system suitable for sample preparation for the use in scanning electron microscope (SEM), Transmission electron microscope (TEM) and X-Ray analysis (EDX).

This device is available in two formats:

DCR is a rotary-pumped carbon coater that is suitable for SEM sample preparation, EDS/WDS and thin film applications.
DCT is a turbo-pumped carbon coater that is ideal for FE-SEM, EDS/WDS, TEM, EBSD and thin film applications.

This high vacuum coater offers high quality uniform carbon films with fine grain sizes which are suitable for specimens that require high resolution and high quality characterization.

Compact Desktop Thin Film PLD & Thermal Evaporation System

PLD – T is a high vacuum thin film deposition system enables to deposit different materials by both Pulsed Laser Deposition and thermal evaporation technique.

It can deposit complex materials and crystalline structures onto substrates with very little setup involved. Pulsed Laser Deposition technique leads to efficient, none-thermal ablation and preserves the stoichiometry of the target materials. By applying this method it could deposit materials such as nitrides, oxides, super lattices, polymers, composites.

Desktop SEM/TEM Sputter and Carbon Coater DSR1

Sample preparation using sputter coating is the recognised method for non-conductive and low conductive specimens or samples.
Vac Techniche DSR1 has been developed to exceed the requirements for SEM/TEM sample preparation.
The compact and easy to use sputter coater, has the option of using existing pumps or supplied with a pump.
For external pumping the on board computer controls the pump or pumping rig.
Larger samples can be accommodated with our increase vacuum chamber DSR-L and DST-L system
For applications where Turbo pumping is required, the DST has integral Turbo vacuum pump with options of standard or larger vacuum vessels to accommodate most sample and specimen sizes.
The Vac Techniche Desktop Sputter Coater enables thin film sputter coating of noble metals: gold (Au), palladium (Pd), platinum (Pt) and gold/palladium (Au/Pd) on non-conductive or poorly conductive samples or devices.
Our board computer integration makes the Desktop Sputter coater an ideal laboratory and research tool for scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and Transmission electron microscopy analysis(TEM).
One of the benefits of our DSR1 design is the rapid pump-down time making it a production tool in addition to a research instrument, for applications such as optical coatings
Thin films are deposited in a with fine control producing repeatable results when used in Automatic mode.

DSR1 with Carbon coating attachment

DSR1 has the facility to accommodate carbon coating attachment, ideal for SEM/TEM preparation.
The DSR1 a sputter coater, with optional carbon coater attachment in one compact instrument is ideal especially when laboratory space is short.
