Microporous silicon nitride TEM windows

April 23, 2012

Norcada announced today the launch of their two newest microporous Silicon Nitride TEM windows to the microscopy and microanalysis communities.These Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) sample holders have a mesh structure with 2µm diameter holes and 3µm distance, and their uniform high quality silicon nitride film is available in 50nm and 200nm thicknesses. These devices perform excellently in high beam intensity TEMs, SEMs and STXM. More details of the new product relese can be found in a related news release through the link below.

Norcada specializes in the development and manufacturing of MEMS devices ( and semiconductor DFB lasers ( for a wide range of industrial and scientific applications.

Founded in 2002, Norcada has a state-of-the-art MEMS and photonics fabrication facility in Edmonton, Alberta, home to a major nanotechnology cluster in Canada.
