The FEI HELIOS NANOLAB 460F1 Dual-Focused Ion Beam (FIB) is a DualBeam focused-ion beam (FIB) instrument capable of adding/removing materials at the nanometer scale and indicating the structure/composition. In AggieFab, it is tasked with nanomachining complex 3D structures using electron beam-induced deposition (EBID), ion milling and material manipulation. It is also used to prepare ultrathin samples for atomic scale analysis during transmission electron microscopy (TEM).
