Carbon Coater Unit – EMITECH K250
Carbon fibre coating is ideal for SEM carbon coating applications. This is used to cover non-conducting samples with a conducting carbon layer for use inside a SEM: Two carbon tips are making electrical contact and a current is running through them, heating them to a red/white glow. Carbon molecules are emitted in all directions inside the vacuum chamber.
