Nano-Tec Magnetic Metal Specimen Support Discs for AFM and SPM
Magnetic metal specimen support discs are used on AFM and SPM systems that employ a button magnet to hold the metal specimen disc. Nano-Tec metal specimen discs are made of magnetic type 430 stainless steel with a nominal thickness of 0.90mm and a tolerance of +/- 0.08mm.
The smooth edges and flat surfaces of the Nano-Tec AFM / SPM discs ensure secure holding by the button magnet. Specimens can be mounted directly on the metal discs with double sided tape, epoxy or conductive paste. If a mica specimen support is needed, the mica discs can be easily mounted on the metal support discs. The metals specimen support discs are currently offered in:
- Bright stainless steel Nano-Tec metal AFM / SPM specimen discs. They are cleaned after manufacturing to remove the dull grey oxide layer you will find on other brands on AFM/ SPM discs. Available in four diameters: 10, 12, 15 and 20mm. Packaged in a plastic tube of 50 each.
- Gold plated Nano-Tec metal AFM / SPM specimen discs with 1µm of pure gold. Gold is an inert metal with high electrical and thermal conductivity and resist electromigration as a chemically inert material. Available in four diameters: 10, 12, 15 and 20mm. Packaged in a 40-100808 AFM disc storage box.
