Sputter carbon and e beam coater Leica EM ACE 600

The EM ACE600 sputter coater is a versatile high vacuum film deposition instrument for your FE-SEM and TEM applications.

Whether you need to

  • enhance contrast by a fine-grained metal layer,
  • produce nanometer thin but robust carbon films,
  • rotary shadow your sample to make smallest features visible, or to
  • move into cryo-coating
