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 ø2.1mm. Opening angle on the holes in the top and base is 120° 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 ø15 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.
