  • Fischione Model 1061 SEM Mill (Ion Milling)

    • Minimal maintenance - 

      Due to the efficiency of ionization, maintenance of the TrueFocus ion source is minimal and the components have an extremely long life. Material sputtered from the ion source is negligible, minimizing both sample contamination and component maintenance. Automated shuttering prevents the buildup of sputtered material on the viewing window. All system components are easily accessible for routine cleaning.
    • Programmable - Sample rotation is 360° with variable rotation speed and a sample rocking feature. The instrument automatically senses the sample thickness and establishes the milling plane, which maximizes throughput. A magnetic encoder provides absolute positioning accuracy.
    • Automatic termination - The ion milling process can be automatically terminated by elapsed time or by temperature. 
    • Time - A timer allows milling to continue for a predetermined time and then turns off the energy to the ion sources when the time has elapsed. The sample remains under vacuum until the load lock is vented. 
    • Temperature - The thermal safeguard associated with the sample cooling system will stop the process if the sample stage reaches a preset temperature.
