Center:  NIAC
Location:  MSE Room 161

The Fischione 1040 ion mill has a low energy ion source (as low as 50 eV) and a beam size as small as 1 um. This allows specimens to be prepared without amorphization, implantation, or redeposition.

This is an accordion element with a series of buttons that open and close related content panels.


  • Ultra-low energy ion source
  • Concentrated ion beam
  • Removes amorphous and implanted layers
  • Ideal for post-focused ion beam processing and milling of conventionally prepared specimens
  • Liquid nitrogen-cooled specimen stage
