Technique Video: Isolating a Microscopical Defect
Isolating, mounting, and handling 1-100 µm sized particles without the use of micromanipulators is a skill that must be developed. In this video from Hooke College of Applied Sciences, Kristie Diebold explains and Kristen Wiley demonstrates how to isolate a defect from a polymer for further analysis.
If you are interested in particle manipulation, consider enrolling in Hooke College’s Sample Preparations Techniques course.
