The LUXORAu is an advanced, fully automated sputtering device that applies a fine grain gold coating from 1 to 100 nm thickness. This allows you to get the very best SEM imaging quality from your samples.

LUXOR’s unique A² technology creates a controlled plasma in the process gas. In the plasma, ions are accelerated by means of high voltage and directed onto the gold target. Finest gold atom clusters are thereby released from the target and coat your samples in a precise manner, resulting in an extremely uniform, thin and homogeneous gold layer.

The LUXORAu is also renowned for its ease of use and quick, hassle-free operation.

LUXOR gold coater is the first in line of a series of tools designed to help the SEM market.
