Abstract
Author: Microscopy Laboratory We recommend consultation with one of the lab directors before preparing specimens. The methods presented here provide an overview of preparation techniques for a variety of specimens. - **Conductive Specimens** (such as metallic objects): Usually, these specimens do not have to be sputter coated. Simply mount the specimen on a SEM stub using conductive paint or putty. - **Non-conductive Dry Specimens** (ex: ceramics, polymers): Mount on specimen stub with glue spots, double-stick tape, conductive paint or putty. These will need to be [sputter coated](http://www.ukans.edu/~bcmic/MEIL/techniques/sputter.html). - **Tough Non-conductiv...
