Model 693 Ilion+™
Model 693 Ilion+™

Abstract:
Gatan, Inc. is pleased to introduce the NEW Ilion+™, a significant advance in the preparation of large planar cross sections for microscopic imaging and microanalysis. The Ilion+ is a dedicated, ion beam based system for the preparation of large area planar cross sections from challenging SEM samples.

NEW Ilion+™: A Breakthrough in SEM Planar Surface Preparation

Pleasanton, CA | Posted on April 14th, 2010

The Ilion+ uses a proprietary milling system that exposes significantly greater areas than traditional FIB milling while encompassing a wider range of delicate samples not compatible with mechanical polishing and other techniques. The system is easy to install and operate allowing users to begin making samples quickly. The Ilion+ design is based on the proven Gatan PIPS™ (Precision Ion Polishing System).

"Our beta results for the Ilion+ confirm our economic model predictions of a threefold reduction in cost per sample when compared to FIB," reports Kevin Scudder, General Manager, Gatan, Inc.
