Modular SEM Specimen Holders
This extensive line of specimen holders all have a female M4 thread and are compatible with all of our modular SEM Stage Adapters. If used with the Jeol or ZEISS/LEO dovetail stage adapter one of the adapter buttons 15372 or 15372-10 is needed.
TEM Grid Holder for 4 Grids, M4
This TEM grid holder holds up to 4 TEM grids. It enables imaging and analyzing specimens on TEM grids in the SEM. For EDS applications it is beneficial to place thin films on a TEM grid or small particles on a TEM grid with a support film. This can significantly reduce background in the EDS spectrum and increase detection limits of the EDS detector. Hole size in the top and base is Ã¸2.1mm. Opening angle on the holes in the top and base is 120Â° to reduce electron scattering and improve X-ray collection.
Overall diameter is 18mm (0.7"), overall height is approximately 25mm (1") with a stand-off pin mounted on a Ã¸15 x 10mmx M4 Hitachi mount. The stand-off pin minimizes electron and X-ray scattering contribution from the stage. TEM grid locations are numbered.
Material: vacuum grade aluminum with brass screw.
Screws used are 6-32 x 1/8 hex set screw, 316 stainless steel and 2-56 x 3/16 flat head screw, brass.
