GV10x – Microscope Chamber Plasma Cleaner


If you have an electron beam column on your microscope then you will need to keep the chamber clean of hydrocarbons to prevent carbon deposition whilst imaging.

The Downstream Asher GV10x from ibss Group Inc. www.ibssgroup.com is easy to use because it can operate (uniquely) across a broad range of vacuum levels (even high vac)

Compatible with any e-beam system from environmental W-SEM, to Aberration Corrected FEG-TEM, Surface Science tools and ebeam Lithography tools.

Microscopes with even severe hydrocarbon contamination (which may have accumulated over an extended period) can be cleaned with ease and without having to maintain any special vacuum conditions.

NanoScope Services has partnered with FIB (an EU company based in Kassel, DE) offering the GV10x DownStream Asher to our fellow FIB, SEM and TEM Microscope users.
