PELCO® Gold Coated AFM/STM Metal Specimen Discs

Advanced Nanotechnology Specimen Support
PELCO® Gold Coated AFM/STM Discs provide excellent substrates for mounting specimens due to their excellent resistance to electromigration, high electrical and thermal conductivity and high temperature operation properties. Gold is the most inert metal. Its adhesion to polymers is expected to be lower than that of other metals, however polymer irradiation with UV light and plasma discharge have been reported to enhance metal-polymer adhesion.
