Gatan Dimple Grinder
Gatan Dimple Grinder model 656
- Principle application is in the preparation of TEM specimen
- Precision instrument used to produce circular dimples (spherical or flat-bottomed profile) in materials such as ceramics, semiconductors, metals and combinations thereof.
- Other applications include the production of accurate, precisely-located taper sections through the surface of specimens, which may then be subjected to analytical techniques such as EDX, SIMS, Auger etc. In this way compositional profiles of segregated surface layers, coating and plantings can be obtained rapidly and with excellent “depth resolution.”
