Abstract

Ultramicrotomy (UM) was used as an alternative specimen preparation method to conventional lapping. Specimens for scanning probe microscopy (SPM) were prepared from a number of powder, particulate and bulk material samples. UM is performed on a trimmed small block of the original material or a particulate material sample embedded in an epoxy resin matrix using an ultramicrotome. An ultramicrotome is a high precision material sectioning system capable of shearing off layers of materials with a thickness variation of less than few tens of Angstroms. This cutting precision makes it possible to prepare ultrathin sections suitable for high resolution transmission electron microscopy.
