Cressington Sputter Coater

Cressington Sputter Coater with Thickness Monitor

Cressington Sputter Coater with Thickness Monitor (Au/Pd, Ag, Cu, Au targets)

This instrument is set up to coat specimens with a thin conductive film of Au/Pd prior to viewing with the ESEM. Virtually any other metal can be deposited as well, for instance, Ag, Cu and Au have all been deposited over self-assembled monolayers of latex spheres used as stencil masks in nanosphere lithography. The thickness monitor permits deposition of a layer of any thickness measured in nanometers.
