  2. Controlled specimen thinning - Ar ion beam milling of a specimen prepared by Xe plasma FIB

    Cross-section and plan view specimens from a GeTe-based phase change memory device prepared using the Xe plasma focused ion beam tool (Xe pFIB), followed by concentrated Ar ion beam milling. Energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) data from the cross-section specimen confirms the removal of Xe pFIB damage after Ar ion beam milling from the marked area (yellow rectangle) in the...

  3. Gimbal Piston Isolator Performance

    The Gimbal Piston® Air Isolator provides outstanding isolation in all directions for even the lowest input levels. It is lightly damped and highly responsive to typical, low-amplitude ambient floor vibrations, yet achieves very high damping for gross transient disturbances, such as sudden load changes or bumping the top plate. The result is that Gimbal Piston Isolators provide superior isolation yet...
