Stages for Leica EM TIC 3X
Rotary stage (retrofittable) has specially been designed for large area milling (flat milling). The ion beam prepared area is exceeding Ø 25 mm.
Standard stage for routine applications and contrast enhancement of the prepared surface.
Multiple Sample Stage
Multiple sample stage is used if high throughput is desired. Three samples can be loaded and automatically processed in the Leica EM TIC 3X in one session (e.g. overnight) without any user interaction.
Cooling stage provides very low temperature processing. With temperatures of the sample holder and mask down to -160°C, extremely heat sensitive samples such as rubber, water soluble polymer fibers or even marshmallows (if desired) can be processed to a high quality.
Vacuum transfer docking station
Perfect for surfacing environmentally sensitive samples which can be subsequently transferred to coating and/or SEM systems under inert gas/vacuum conditions
Various sample holders
Various sample holders for almost every sample size and a wide range of use are available e.g. one sample holder for the complete process from mechanical pre-preparation (Leica EM TXP) to ion beam slope cutting (Leica EM TIC 3X) to SEM investigation to the point of storage.
Sample holders for rotary stage
Sample holders for samples up to 12 mm height as well as adaptors for commercial available SEM stubs
