Sputter/carbon coaters

Coating can be an effective technique for obtaining high-quality SEM images when working with challenging samples such as beam-sensitive and non-conductive materials. Sputter coating uses ionized argon to vaporize Au-Pd atoms from a target and deposit them in a thin layer onto a sample. The carbon coater uses carbon rod as the evaporation source. It is generally used for preparing samples where metal coatings need to be avoided (e.g. EDS applications). Cressington Sputter coater, Physics 305
