Flat and cross sectional ion milling employs a focused beam of argon ions to create a flat and smooth surface free of mechanical deformation, essential for high-resolution microscopy and related techniques like EBSD. Ion milling enables the detailed analysis of a sample’s internal structure while minimizing or completely eliminating the impacts of abrasive sample preparation steps.
Cryo-milling utilizes liquid nitrogen to control the temperature of heat-sensitive samples such as polymers.
