Silicon Chips

Square silicon chips are ideal substrates for Microscopy and Spectroscopy applications.   The chips are 10-mm square and 525-µm thick.  See bottom of page for additional properties.


Silicon Chips Coated with Metals or Silica

Chips coated with gold (Au), platinum (Pt) or aluminum (Al).  The metals are 99.999% pure.  Physical vapor deposition (e-beam evaporation) enables high quality metal films.
