“We bought a GV10x in MCA configuration about a year ago. I use the stand-alone chamber to clean samples and TEM holders. I also have two flanges (spoolers), one for each SEM (w/isolation valves), to clean my two SEM chambers once a month. I successfully used it at the xxx Bldg. last week on their old JEOL SEM. It made a huge difference.”
SEM, FIB and TEM hydrocarbon contamination cleaning solutions
"Cleaning rates were so high that depositions were removed faster than expected...it becomes obvious that the carbon cleaning in the case of the GV10x...is much more efficient."

An extended study on an advanced method for the cleaning of carbon contaminations from large optical surfaces using a remote inductively coupled low-pressure RF plasma source (GV10x DownStream Asher) is reported. Technical and scientific features of this scaled up cleaning process are analysed, such as the cleaning efficiency for different carbon allotropes (amorphous and diamond-like…. more…
Characterization, optimization and surface physics aspects of in situ plasma mirror cleaning Although the graphitic carbon contamination of synchrotron beamline optics has been an obvious problem for several decades, the basic mechanisms underlying the contamination process as well as the cleaning/remediation strategies are not understood and the corresponding cleaning procedures are still…. more…
Downstream Plasma Technology for Cleaning TEM Samples on Carbon Films Plasma cleaning has become an essential step in modern analytical electron microscopy, which requires contamination-free samples for imaging and elemental analysis. However, the dilemma for carbon film TEM grid users is how to plasma-clean the hydrocarbon contamination while preserving the carbon support film. In order…. more…
