Back MODEL 550 - Jet Thinning Instrument for TEM Samples
 
550 Jet thinning for TEM

The Model 550D Single Vertical Jet Electropolisher is designed to perform damage free thinning of materials for subsequent analysis in a Transmission Electron Microscope. This extremely versatile instrument can be used to thin metals and alloys electrolytically with corrosive electrolytes such as perchloric acid at low temperatures; or to thin nonmetals and semiconductors such as silicon and gallium arsenide, chemically, using nitric acid, hydrofluoric acid or bromine-methanol solutions. Any solution that does not harm the PVC plastic, or the glass or plastic reservoirs can be used.
