microPREP43D-Micromac introduces all-new system for high-throughput microdiagnostic sample preparation at ISTFA 2014

3D-Micromac AG, a leading supplier of state-of-the-art laser micromachining systems, introduces a novel laser system for high-throughput microdiagnostic sample preparation at ISTFA 2014 in Houston, Texas from November 11 to November 12, 2014.

The all-new microPREP™ system for laser-based sample preparation was developed to provide efficient laser micromachining fitted to the needs of microstructure diagnostics and failure diagnostics. Based on patented processing, 3D-Micromac’s microPREP™ is ready to do the laser cutting of a base structure followed by local laser thinning in an almost entirely automated fashion. Making use of a rugged pulsed laser source, the process is characterized by very low running costs, suitability for semiconductors, metals, ceramics, as well as compounds thereof, and a very high targeted precision on the micron scale.

microPREP™ is not just a tool to prepare samples for transmission electron microscopy but will come with options for atom-probe microscopy, tomography, transmission Kikuchi diffraction, and micromechanical testing. The modular stage and software design will allow to meet the growing requirements of clients and the market.
