The TEM turbo carbon coater has been designed to produce high quality thin carbon support films, and coating and shadowing of TEM grids. The system incorporates a turbomolecular pumping system to provide the high vacuum necessary to form coherent films. The 150mm diameter x 150mm high work chamber is equipped with a dual shaped carbon rod source, which can be operated in manual, pulsed or automatic modes. Thickness can be monitored by the optional film thickness monitor. Low angle shadowing can be achieved by use of the optional motorised low angle shadowing table.
A number of accessories are available for use with the coater. These are designed to provide the full range of facilities associated with TEM applications. All accessories require the auxiliary power unit for operation. A 'smart' cable is used from the power supply to the accessory in use and activates the appropriate controls.
