New TEM Grids for FIB Lift-Out Procedures

publication date: Dec 15, 2015
author/source: EM Resolutions

EM Resolutions, manufacturers and suppliers of tools and accessories for users of electron microscopes, announce the availability of EM-Tec FIB grids which offer a secure way to attach TEM lamellas to the posts during lift-out procedures with FIB or SEM/FIB systems. 

EM-Tec FIB gridsThe new EM-Tec range of FIB lift-out grids from EM Resolutions provides a secure way to attach TEM lamella prepared with Focussed Ion Beam (FIB) instruments. Available in multiple post configurations, with a shape optimized for easy accessibility, EM-Tec FIB grids are compatible with all standard 3 mm TEM grid holders. 

EM-Tec FIB lift-out grids are available in three types: copper, molybdenum and unique, smooth-walled molybdenum. The copper FIB grids are supplied in 2, 3 or 5 post configurations. For challenging applications, requiring high temperatures or harsh treatments, the standard molybdenum EM-Tec FIB lift-out grids are available as 2, 3 and 4 posts. Molybdenum FIB lift-out grids inherently have some roughness of the side wall that takes valuable FIB time to smooth out before mounting a lamella. The new 3 post smooth-walled version of the molybdenum lift out grid saves valuable time on the FIB, by virtually eliminating or reducing the time previously needed for wall smoothing. 

Each EM-Tec lift-out grid has a number corresponding to the number of posts etched into the left side of the grid, which serves to readily distinguish front and back. This is combined with a series of unique symbols under each post for quick and easy identification.
