The Cressington 108 Sputter Coater is the ‘gold standard’ for depositing thin conductive metal films on SEM specimens. Gold is deposited from a metal target via an argon plasma. A simple 20 second sputter deposition is all that is needed to improve the conductivity of any SEM specimen. The system is designed for quick and easy operation and is capable of coating multiple specimens at a time.
