PIPS II System


PIPS II System

Ion Polishing System 

The Gatan PIPS II is a precision ion polishing system for precise centering, control and reproducibility of your milling process.

  • Locate and centre the region of interest with a precise X,Y stage.
  • Variable energy from 0.1 – 8.0 kV.
  • Useable voltages as low as 100 volts, with an improved collimated beam. Prepare FIB lamella quickly and without damage.
  • LN2 specimen cooling to eliminate artifacts.
  • Digital optical imaging – store and analyse images in DigitalMicrograph® software.
  • Control via a 10″ colour touchscreen .

Digital Zoom Microscope

Monitor the polishing process in real time with the digital zoom microscope. Store optical images to review and analyse along with your TEM and EELS data.
