We recommend the following TEM Windows that can act as a robust substrate on which to deposit films or grow nanoparticles or nanowires:

  • 10, 20 & 50 nm thick Silicon Nitride TEM Windows are our most robust, flat and hydrophilic substrates for demanding sample preparation procedures.
The following list of publications contain data collected with our TEM Window Grids.

Graphene Oxide Windows for In Situ Environmental Cell Photoelectron Spectroscopy. Kolmakov et al. (2011) Nature Nanotechnology. 6: 651-657.

Revealing Correlation of Valence State with Nanoporous Structure in Cobalt Catalyst Nanoparticles by in Situ Environmental TEM. Xin et al. (2012) ACS Nano 6(5): 4241-4247.

MEMS Process Compatibility of Multiwall Carbon Nanotubes. Cook et al. (2011) J. Vacuum Sci. Tech.29:06FE04-06FE04.
  • 15 nm thick UltraSM« Pure Silicon TEM Windows are our most robust pure silicon films. These amorphous films offer plasma cleanability, tunable surface hydrophobicity and the ability to analyze for nitrogen and carbon without background signals.
  • NANOPOROUS UltraSM« Pure Silicon TEM Windows are similar to the non-porous windows, but have numerous 10-50 nm diameter pores that can suspend nanomaterials for imaging or growth. The polycrystaline structure provides an internal sizing and diffraction pattern calibration standard as well.
  • 20 & 40 nm thick Silicon Dioxide TEM windows offer an ideal surface for high-temperature nanomaterial growth of specimens.
