EM - SEM Calibration Specimen Mounts

Created by Kathleen Patrick, Modified on Tue, 28 May at 1:26 PM by Kathleen Patrick

There are mounts available for most SEMs on the market which are listed below from Type A to Type R. 

The test specimen of calibration standard is mounted on the selected SEM specimen mounts with conductive cement. All test specimens and calibration standards are normally mounted in the centre of the specimen mount. If a specific location other than the centre is needed, Mount G should be ordered along with a clear drawing for the custom mounting required.
