Sample Preparation

A large group of samples require some sort of pretreatment or sample preparation before they can be loaded into a SEM for imaging or analysis.

For example, consider the multistep sample preparation of cutting, embedding and polishing metal samples.

At this site, you will find sample preparation techniques that:
Prevent sample loading by gold and platinum sputter coating
Allow to obtain a perfect dispersion of particles from which size and shape distributions can be determined
Create the perfect surface properties of a sample required for SEM imaging and analysis by ion milling.
