Template Stripped Gold Chips – Silicon Wafer


Template: Prime Grade Silicon Wafer (polished)

Substrate: Glass – 1 cm x 1 cm (20 chips total)

Metal Surface: Gold (100-nm)

SKU: AU.1000.SWTSG Categories: ,


Template stripped gold offers pristine surfaces of Au(111) with ultra-low RMS roughness.

Applications include: AFM and STM imaging of self-assembled monolayers, nano-contact printing, nanophotonics and DNA origami.

Features & Benefits

  • RMS roughness approaching atomic flatness.
  • Uncontaminated Surface – Gold is protected from the atmosphere until stripped from the template, providing a pristine surface free from organics and other atmospheric contaminants.
  • Ready to Use – Chips do not require cleaning, eliminating the need for hazardous cleaning solutions or expensive cleaning equipment.
  • Convenient – Multiple chips per template make it easy to prepare fresh, clean, and ultraflat chips just seconds before your next experiment.
