Evactron – Remote Plasma Cleaning Devices
The Evactron® De-Contaminator System removes residual hydrocarbon contamination, allowing users of Electron and Ion Beam instruments such as SEMs, TEMs, and FIBs to easily maintain optimal imaging environments.
These problematic hydrocarbons can interact with the beam to precipitate onto the surfaces of the sample being examined and lead to the “Black Squares,” seen in the image on the top left. Brief operation of the Evactron system removes the contamination from the vacuum system and results in superior images, such as the one on the bottom left.
