FIB Lift-Out Grids and Grid Boxes

PELCO® FIB Lift-Out TEM Grids – Available in Cu, Mo and Si

The PELCO® FIB Lift-Out TEM Grids have been designed for in-situ lift to attach the TEM lamellas milled out by SEM/FIB or FIB systems. The design has been optimized for access and flexibility. The nominal diameter of the sturdy PELCO® FIB Lift-Out Grids is 3mm. These grids fit an all standard TEM holders and provide a full view of the thin section attached to the posts.


Copper PELCO® FIB Lift-Out Grid TEM Grids

The typical thickness of the copper lift-out grids is 35um +/-5um. The Cu FIB lift-out grids also have a thinner ridge on the inside, where the lamellas can be attached and are protected when stored. Available with either one or two wider v-shaped posts or four narrow flat posts with identification number etch through. Use single or dual wider posts for attaching single lamellas or the four posts for attaching a larger number of lamellas. Size of wide post is 250 x 35 x 190µm (W x D x H), size of narrow post is 80 x 35 x 190µm (W x D x H). Sold in packs of 100. FIB grid with 2 wide posts available with thickness of 55µm ±5µm as well.

Silicon PELCO® FIB Lift-Out Grid TEM Grids

The thickness of the silicon lift-out grids is 100µm which makes them compatible with all standard TEM holders. Perfect half circular shape which fits nicely in the TEM grid holder. Debris-free, metal-free lift-out grids which readily bond with Pt to attach the lamellas. Straight edges, similar to the Cu and Mo grids; easy to handle. B-doped, conductive silicon minimizes charging during sample preparation and TEM imaging. Available with four narrow posts, which can be shaped if needed. Post size is 80x100x190µm (WxDxH). Sold in packs of 10.

They are perfectly round shaped 3mm frame featuring the Easygrip™ edge for easy handling. No broken edges and free of debris often associated with other manufacturing processes. Offered with three sizes of openings: 0.5 x 0.5, 1.0 x 1.0 and 1.5 x 0.5mm. Fully compatible will standard 3mm TEM holders.
  • Support frame to attach TEM lamellas made with FIB, DualBeam® or CrossBeam® instruments for subsequent TEM imaging
  • Easy access due to wide angle opening
  • Protects TEM Lamella During Transport

Window angle toward the back is 35.26 degrees, which results in aperture dimensions:
