JEOL Carbon Coater EC-32010CC


JEOL’s Carbon Coater, used for sample preparation, evaporates carbon to create a conductive thin film on the sample surface for SEM imaging.

Thin film conductive coatings are effective in eliminating charging with non-conductive materials. Carbon has an advantage over heavy metal coatings, for example, gold or platinum, for x-ray applications (EDS/WDS), CL, or backscatter electron imaging due to its inherent low absorption characteristics.

The Carbon Coater’s fully automated vacuum, pre-heat and evaporation sequences make this device simple to use. Insert your samples and turn the unit on, and the chamber will automatically evacuate. Press PREHEAT to degas the carbon rod, then press EVAPORATE, and the unit will automatically evaporate the carbon to create the thin film. Once the carbon evaporation is completed, the system automatically vents to atmosphere.

Film thickness can be adjusted by changing the height of the sample stage.
