The SC7620 is a compact, low cost SEM sputter coater. When combined with the optional carbon attachment SC7620-CF it makes the ideal low-cost SEM sputtering and carbon coating system package. Additionally, the SC7620 is fitted as standard with a glow discharge function, making it ideal for the hydrophilisation, or ’wetting’, of carbon-coated TEM grids and other surface modifications. A panel-mounted switch allows the system to be easily changed between sputter coating and glow discharge modes. The SC7620 is robust, easy to operate and designed for coating specimens prior to examination in tungsten filament SEMs.
