TEM grid holders with short posts of standard 3.2mm diameter are available. The TEM grid/sample holder has workstations for two TEM grids and with either one or two sample pucks.
The pivoting TEM grid holder has workstations for two TEM grids and allows manual adjustment of the grid holder plate to obtain the optimal milling incidence angle, even when at the FIB stage tilt limit. The TEM plate angle is manipulated in situ, using the tip of an empty AutoProbe 300 gripper shaft. The pivoting grid holder is non-magnetic.
The single sample holder accommodates a 3mm TEM grid, and has raised edges that have been designed to protect samples from accidental damage. The single sample holder can be mounted on the sample holder base, which allows samples to be viewed under a stereomicroscope from two angles without focus adjustment.
Long post TEM holders 3.2mm dia x 8.1mm length.
