DCR Desktop Carbon Coater for SEM/TEM Sample Preparation

Vac Coat DESKTOP COATERS

Compact Desktop Carbon Coater

Desk Carbon Coater is a compact carbon fiber coating system suitable for sample preparation for the use in scanning electron microscope (SEM), Transmission electron microscope (TEM) and X-Ray analysis (EDX).

This device is available in two formats:

DCR is a rotary-pumped carbon coater that is suitable for SEM sample preparation, EDS/WDS and thin film applications.
DCT is a turbo-pumped carbon coater that is ideal for FE-SEM, EDS/WDS, TEM, EBSD and thin film applications.

This high vacuum coater offers high quality uniform carbon films with fine grain sizes which are suitable for specimens that require high resolution and high quality characterization.

SEM/TEM Preparation Carbon Coater, Low and high vacuum systems

Sample preparation using Carbon coating is the recognised method for non-conductive and low conductive specimens or samples.
The DCT system is a versatile carbon evaporator for preparing specimens for electron microscopy or EDXA analysis. It has been designed as a high-current power supply capable of evaporating both carbon rod and carbon fibre. In other words, it can coat carbon on different types of substrates for X-Ray analysis and coating conducting carbon fibre & rod for SEM analysis.
The excellent design of the system enables the user to easily load and unload samples, and quickly replace the carbon fibre/rod. The system is equipped with a film thickness monitor (FTM), which measures the coating thickness on a quartz crystal mounted in the vacuum chamber with an accuracy of 1 nm. The system can automatically terminate a coating cycle when the required thickness or time has been achieved..
The compact and easy to use carbon coater, has the option of using existing pumps or supplied with a pump.
For external pumping the on board computer controls the pump or pumping rig.
Larger samples can be accommodated with our increased vacuum chamber DCR-L and DCT-L system
Carbon Coating
Due to its excellent transparency and good electrical conductivity, deposited carbon thin films are widely used for either electron microscopy (EM) or X-ray microanalysis applications such as:
• support films for TEM (high vacuum (HV) evaporation)
• conductive films for SEM/EDS samples (low vacuum evaporation)
• conductive surface films for non-conductive microprobe samples (HV evaporation)
• conductive surface films for non-conductive EBSD samples (HV evaporation)
• conductive surface films for non-conductive FESEM samples (HV evaporation)
• conductive surface films for non-conductive FIB samples (HV evaporation)
Our board computer integration makes the Desktop Sputter coater an ideal laboratory and research tool for scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and Tunnelling electron microscopy analysis(TEM).
Thin films of about 5 nm (50Å) are used for particle support and as an isolating layer in autoradiography. Thicker films are also used in SEM and X-Ray Microanalysis. In general, deposited thin films should be uniformed with fine grain sizes and reproducible film thickness.
Carbon rod and carbon fibre are the two widely used sources for carbon evaporation in laboratories around the word. They each have their own features that make them of specific interests to the users. For a better understanding, further details of these features are presented in the following sections.

Carbon Rod versus Carbon Fibre Evaporation

Evaporating carbon thread or a pre-shaped carbon rod are both common methods to evaporate carbon. Using pre-shaped rods with the correct control system (pulse, continuous and auto) delivers a high quality carbon layer and also gives good control over the thickness of the carbon layer. However, some users prefer to use carbon fibre because it has a faster and simpler process comparing with carbon rod.

ELECTROSPINNING UNITS

Labscale Electrospinning Unit (Electroris)

Electrospinning is An established method of producing nano- and micro-fibres from a wide variety of natural and synthetic polymers is knows as  Electrospinning

Electroris® is a lab-scale electrospinning machine to prepare polymeric/carbon/ceramic nanofibers with diameter range of 50 nm to a few microns. The machine mainly consists of metallic body, syringe pump, spinneret system, collector system and high voltage power supply.
 
In side by side Electrospinning system, there are two syringe pumps on both sides of the rotating collector drum, making the system to consist of 2 syringe pumps, 2 scan systems, 2 distance adjusters and 2 high voltage power supplies.

Even though the production rate of dual pump model is two times higher compared to the standard one, this is not its main advantage.

In these systems two different materials could be electrospun simultaneously. Furthermore, the system makes it possible to electrospin polymeric material from one side and additive materials, such as medications, from the opposite side, producing composite nanofibers containing desired components.

Therefore, it is suitable for pharmaceutical, medicinal, biological, etc. applications.
This machine employs a panel for controlling electrospinning parameters including injection rate of polymeric solution, electrospinning distance, rotating speed of collector drum, working temperature (room temperature to 45°C) and working time. Electroris® provides excellent safety schemes for the users with respect to the handling of high voltage power supply and chemical solvents.

There is also the option of Humidity control.
