Advanced sample preparation
For many of today’s advanced materials, analysis by SEM is an ideal technique for rapidly studying material structure and properties. Fischione Instruments' Model 1061 SEM Mill is an excellent tool for creating the sample surface characteristics needed for SEM imaging and analysis.
The SEM Mill accepts the following sample sizes:
最大值：0.39 x 0.39 x 0.157英寸（10 x 10 x 4.0 mm）
最小值：0.12 x 0.12 x 0.028英寸（3 x 3 x 0.7 mm）
1.25英寸直径x 1英寸高度（32 x 25 mm）
Automatic sample thickness sensing maximizes throughput, while magnetic encoding provides absolute positioning accuracy.
Cross-section station (optional)
The Fischione Instruments’ Cross-section station is a tool for creating pristine cross-section samples ready for ion milling in the SEM Mill. Click here to learn more about theCross-section station。
The SEM Mill features a vacuum load lock for rapid sample exchange. The load lock is ergonomically designed; simply lift the load lock cover to load the sample holder onto the stage.
Replace the cover and evacuation of the load lock occurs within a few seconds. The vacuum secures the load lock cover in place during ion milling. An electronically controlled elevator then moves the sample into the milling position.
Vacuum or inert gas transfer capsule (optional)
The SEM Mill’s vacuum chamber remains under continuous vacuum during operation. A load lock isolates the high chamber vacuum from ambient during sample exchange, ensuring optimal vacuum conditions.
Precise angle adjustment

Although milling at low angles with low ion beam energies reduces sample heating, temperature-sensitive samples may require further cooling. Liquid nitrogen cooling of the sample stage is very effective in eliminating heat-induced artifacts.
The SEM Mill’s liquid nitrogen system features a dewar located within the enclosure that is fully integrated and interlocked. The dewar is positioned near the operator for easy access. Two dewar options are available: a standard dewar for applications that require 3 to 5 hours of cooling during ion milling, or an extended dewar for applications that require 18+ hours of operation under cryogenic conditions. Temperature is continuously displayed on the touch screen.
The SEM Mill offers the ability to program and maintain a specific temperature between ambient and cryogenic.
A thermal safeguard can be programmed to a specific stage temperature threshold at which the ion sources will be deactivated if the liquid nitrogen in the dewar becomes depleted.
A timer allows milling to continue for a predetermined time and then turns off the energy to the ion sources when the time has elapsed. The sample remains under vacuum until the load lock is vented.
The thermal safeguard associated with the sample cooling system will stop the process if the sample stage reaches a preset temperature.
In situ sample viewing
The ion milling process can be monitored in situ in the milling position when using either the optional stereo or the high-magnification microscope.
The viewing window is protected by a shutter, which prevents buildup of sputtered material that could interfere with sample observation.
High magnification microscope (optional)
Both the high-magnification and stereo microscopes have light sources that provide top-down, user adjustable, reflected sample illumination.
For automated, unattended operation, you can program a series of milling sequences. A typical approach is to begin with rapid milling to remove larger amounts of sample material; then, as the sample thins, a lower milling rate to polish the sample. These milling sequences can be easily stored and recalled for future use.
During milling operations, milling sequence progress and instrument status are displayed in real time on the touch screen.
Access to instrument configuration, administrative and diagnostic tools, and maintenance and log files, is controlled through privileges granted to the various user levels and require login credentials.
Stack light system status indicator (optional)
An optional stack light allows you to view the system status from across the room.
因为气体要求TrueFocus ion sourceare small, the 70 lps turbomolecular drag pump produces an operating system vacuum of approximately 5 x 10-4 mbar. The vacuum level is measured with a cold cathode, full-range gauge and is continuously displayed on the touch screen.
Due to the efficiency of ionization, maintenance of theTrueFocus ion sourceis minimal and the components have an extremely long life. Material sputtered from the ion source is negligible, minimizing both sample contamination and component maintenance. Automated shuttering prevents the buildup of sputtered material on the viewing window. All system components are easily accessible for routine cleaning.
