SILICON NITRIDE TEM WINDOW GRIDS
5 nm, 10 nm, 20 nm, 50 nm, and MICROPOROUS
Silicon Nitride (SiN) TEM Windows
Low-Stress Silicon Nitride
– 100 micron thick frame, fits 3 mm sample holders
– 5 nm thick Silicon Nitride film
– (1) 25 x 25 micron window
We are offering a grid with a single window – just 25 microns (+/- 5 microns). This is used in a number of unique applications such as single pore DNA sequencing where an ion beam is used to drill a hole in the membrane.
Smaller single window grids (down to 10 microns) can be fabricated through our custom program. Please contact us for more information.
Note: It has been reported that the 5 nm silicon nitride windows may have slight wrinkling (significantly less than silicon dioxide or pure silicon). This does not affect TEM imaging.

– Competitively Priced: state of the art manufacturing processes and an expert engineering team allow us to offer Silicon Nitride solutions at competitive prices
– Plasma Cleanable: Silicon nitride grids can be vigorously plasma cleaned to remove organic contamination, unlike carbon grids
– Increased Uniformity: reduced field-to-field variability
– Tolerates temperatures >1000C: supports use in environmental TEMs where dynamic processes are observed at high temperatures
– Withstands harsh deposition & chemical conditions: provides an ideal balance of imaging resolution and mechanical strength
– Incorporates LPCVD, low-stress (~250MPa), non-stoichiometric silicon nitride: provides flat, insulating and hydrophobic surfaces
