Breeze Series In-Situ Holders(Heating)

Product Features

By applying thermal field control to the sample through MEMS chips, combined with various modes such as EDS, EELS, SAED, HRTEM, STEM, etc., key information such as microstructure evolution, reaction kinetics, phase transition, element valence, chemical changes, microstresses, and atomic level structure and composition evolution at the surface/interface of the sample can be monitored in real-time and dynamically at the nano or even atomic level in a gas environment.

    High resolution in gas environments ·1.Using the original MEMS processing technology, the thickness of silicon nitride film in the chip window area can reach 10nm.
    ·2.The chip packaging adopts a double insurance method of bonding inner seal and epoxy resin outer seal, making the thinnest interlayer between the chips only about 100-200 nm. The ultra-thin interlayer greatly reduces interference with the electron beam, allowing for clear observation of the atomic arrangement of the sample, and achieving atomic level resolution in the gas environment.
    High security ·1.Adopting patented nanofluidic technology, fluid differential control is achieved through a piezoelectric micro control system to achieve nano upgraded micro fluid transportation. The redundant gas volume in the in-situ nanofluidic system and sample holder is only slightly increased, effectively ensuring the safety of the electron microscope.
    ·2.Adopt the polymer membrane surface contact sealing technology,compared with the O-ring sealing,the sealing contact area is incre ased,effectively reduce the risk of leakage.
    ·3.Using ultra-high temperature coating technology, the silicon nitride film in the window area of the chip has advantages such as high temperature resistance,low stress,pressure resistance, corrosion resistance,and radiation resistance.
    Excellent thermal performance ·1.High precision infrared temperature calibration,micron level high resolution thermal field measure ment and calibration,to ensure the accuracy of temperature.
    ·2.The high stability have precious metal heating wire (non-ceramic material) , it is not only a thermal guide material but also a thermal sensitive material. Its resistance has a good linear relationship with temperature.The heating area covers the whole observation area,and the heating and cooling speed is fast,and the thermal field is stable and uniform.Temperature fluctuation in steady state is less than±0.01℃.
    ·3.Adopt the closed loop high-frequency dynamic control and feedback of ambient temperature control method,high-frequency feedback control to eliminate errors, achieving temperature control accuracy of ±0.01°C.
    ·4.Unique multi-stage composite heating MEMS chip design,by controlling the heat diffusion during heating process,greatly inhibit the heat drift during heating process, and ensure the efficient observation of the experiment .
