The Evactron Plasma Decontaminator
XEI Scientific manufacture the Evactron plasma decontamination systems. Tom Levesque explains how they can be used as a benchtop unit or on instruments such as scanning electron microscopes (SEM), transmission electron microscopes (TEM) or focused ion beam systems (FIB). In these applications they can be used to clean samples or chambers, removing organic contaminants or hydrocarbon residues.
As a consequence of cleaner samples and chambers, the microscope resolution is improved and better data can be obtained, making them a must for researchers looking to obtain the best possible results.
