In three preparation labs the EMC-DA provides a variety of methods to address the ever-growing demands for a sophisticated sample preparation. Beside conventional methods like dimpling precise grinding and polishing tools are available to produce thin sections and electron transparent wedges. All preparation steps can be performed water-free.

Furthermore, the EMC-DA provides different ion etch devices to address the material related defiance in the last preparation step.

By manipulating the etch parameters, TEM lamella of highest quality are prepared providing a minimum of structural an chemical artifacts.

Further equipment:

  • (Cryo-) Ultramicrotomy
  • Electrochemical etching
  • Various cutting-/grinding-/polishing devices
  • Powder preparation
  • Embedding devices
