Buy Tripod Polishers Online at Ladd Research

The Tripod Polisher was designed by researchers at the IBM East Fishkill Laboratory to accurately prepare TEM and SEM samples of pre-specified, micron-sized regions. For TEM Samples, this technique has been used successfully to limit ion milling times to less than 15 minutes and, in some cases, has eliminated the need for ion milling. Although this technique was designed for preparing semiconductor cross-sections, it has been used to prepare both plan-view and cross-section samples from such diverse materials as ceramics, composites, metals and geological samples.
