|Carl Zeiss SMT adds third column to NVision 40 CrossBeam system for Argon supreme milling of TEM lamella.|
Supreme milling. Third column makes NVision 40 even more versatile.
To enable the production of highly polished TEM lamellas, Carl Zeiss SMT now offers an additional Argon ion beam column to its successful NVison 40 CrossBeam workstation.
Highly polished TEM lamellas are a prerequisite for successful analysis of specimens in a transmission electron microscope. The new low-energy Argon ion column in the NVision 40 CrossBeam workstation allows the fabrication of supreme sample quality by enabling almost complete removal of surface damage that typically occurs during the initial FIB milling steps. With this "supreme milling" method, unprecedented TEM lamella quality is achieved enabling quantitative atomic resolution characterization of samples. By employing the new triple beam technology, time consuming and cost-intensive additional polishing processes in auxiliary tools become obsolete.
Two dedicated products
The new NVision 40 Argon will be available in two dedicated models:
* a process oriented, high-throughput version dedicated to routine TEM sample preparation for semiconductor customers;
* a multi purpose versatile version for the highest demands in processing and analytics applications in materials science and the semiconductor lab.
The Argon ion column is retrofittable to existing NVision 40 workstations.
NVision 40 Argon is a joint product of Carl Zeiss SMT Nano Technology System division and its Japanese partner SII Nano Technology.
