Silicon Oxide TEM Windows
– 100 micron thick frame, fits 3 mm sample holders
– 20 nm thick Silicon Oxide film
– Dimensions: Nine windows: (8) 50 x 50 micron squares, (1) 50 x 100 micron square. Guaranteed Intact
NOTE: To improve membrane strength, we have changed membrane window size to
(8) 50 x 50 micron squares, (1) 50 x 100 micron square. Guaranteed Intact Improved Grid Shape.
We have re-engineered our TEM grids so that they are easier to handle. By making the grids slightly narrower users now have easy access to grids in TEM holders. No more fumbling with tweezers while trying to pick up or put down grids. The new TEMWindow grid shape is still compatible with all standard holders.
100% Satisfaction Guaranteed
Note: Non-Porous films are lightly wrinkled with approximately 5 microns or less deflection across 100 microns of travel. This is typically not problematic for high-resolution imaging.

– Competitively Priced: state of the art manufacturing processes and an expert engineering team allow us to offer Silicon Dioxide solutions at competitive prices
– Plasma Cleanable: Silicon dioxide window 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 températures
– Withstands harsh deposition & chemical conditions: provides an ideal balance of imaging resolution and mechanical strength
– Incorporates stoichiometric silicon dioxide: offers the ability to analyze for nitrogen by EDX techniques
