The JEOL’s Cross Section Polisher IB-09010CP is routinely used to produce pristine cross sections of samples without smearing, crumbling, distorting or contaminating the samples in any way. The samples are fixed to a rotating sample holder that rocks under an argon beam with excellent precision. The angle of incidence of the argon beam is such that no surface contamination occurs during milling.
