No no stop! Dont try the transformer oil on the gun part. Transformer oil eats plastics and rubbers. Been there done that and paid the price. If you want to use any oils in the gun part of a EM use any of the silicone oils from dow corning. 702 or 705. that works just as well. What we use is the insulating epoxy they use for electrical cables. You can buy it from your local electrician shop. It comes in a packet with two sections. simply mix the two halfs, pour into the gun HT cable connection area, after repair, and it's fine. Much cheaper, less messy and safer.

Hi Andy

To save writing out all the options please take a look at our web site HINTS
and TIPS to check where your problem is,
is it the gun, gun chamber, cable or high voltage tank? Do not consider
that the only problem is likely to be the insulation of the gun. Chamber
cleanliness, vacuum level etc all play a part in high voltage breakdown a
feature that will result in beam instability.

But is it beam instability due to the gun (emission meter variations,
virtual source fluttering) or due to contamination in the condenser system
illumination flutter or movement)?

Hope this helps?

Dear Members
I am trying to accumulate literature sources that explain how best
to prepare insect specimens for sectioning so that the medium adheres well
and such that the knife doesn't 'catch' the specimen and 'drag' it out of
the medium. I would like to start with semi-thin sections of wings, and
then ultra thin for TEM. If there are any 'inside' tricjs that are
unpublished or otherwise unlikely to be encountered, I would be grateful.
Thanks
Ian

Dear Ian,
For LM use London Resin and try to match the hardness of the resin to
the tissue eg use the hardest grade for highly sclerotised beetle
cuticle and the medium grade for most cuticles. Tricks like orienting
the block so the knife cuts the cuticle first then cuts through the
underlying tissue will help but the hydrophobic epicuticle of some
insects will never bond to the resin when using standard
glutaraldehyde/osmium fixations. Yell if you want more detail.
Cheers,

First the flame: why assume we only like looking at little itty bitty
things?

On to real comments: Actually, I like looking at anything (size doesn't
count) and I like making cool and/or pretty pictures and I like math puzzles.

Being a microscopist fulfills all of these and pays my bills. To support
my job and my interests, to have access to the cool materials and
technologies that keep me fascinated, I need to be concerned with the
latest multi-probe cutting edge technologies, running a multi-user
facility, having a
purchasing department, federal grants, personnel and a job. Such is reality.

The conclusion is:
We should be discussing both the microscopies (cool pictures and how to
make them regardless whether they are snowflakes for the elementary
classroom or biological processes to understand cutting edge protein
interactions) and the processes for supporting the microscopies (e.g.
federal grants vs. commercial).

I've been subscribed here for years. It seems to me this listserv is doing
exactly what I describe/prescribe. Do we really need to discuss this more?

Subject: [Microscopy] Osmium vapors

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives
http://www.microscopy.com/MicroscopyListserver/MicroscopyArchives.html

Question to the list:

Our local safety inspector is concerned about the appearance
of the fridge where we stock our solution of osmium. As you
can expect the white interior of the fridge has turned grey
with vapors of osmium over the years. Although we are
taking every precautions to avoid leakage of osmium
vapor from its container, this is a problem that I have
observed in every EM lab that I have worked in. Does
someone on the list have a method to store osmium in such
a way as to avoid any escape of vapor? Also, is there
something we could put into fridge that would trap osmium
vapors as they leak out? Thanks for your advise.

Question to the list:

Our local safety inspector is concerned about the appearance
of the fridge where we stock our solution of osmium. As you
can expect the white interior of the fridge has turned grey
with vapors of osmium over the years. Although we are
taking every precautions to avoid leakage of osmium
vapor from its container, this is a problem that I have
observed in every EM lab that I have worked in. Does
someone on the list have a method to store osmium in such
a way as to avoid any escape of vapor? Also, is there
something we could put into fridge that would trap osmium
vapors as they leak out? Thanks for your advise.

We store our osmium in a secondary container...a large poly pro bottle
(capped) and then we bag that container in a plastic Ziploc. It helps a
bit.

When OsO4 came in metal cans, I found by placing the working solution in a
Wheaton dropper bottle, wrap the bulb with Parafilm, place the bottle in the
can, close the lid, wrap the lid with electrician tape, and place the can in
a plastic Ziplock bag worked great. You could essentially use any clean
glass container, not just a Wheaton bottle.

After 20 years of working with OsO4, the inside of the refrigerator was
pristine. It requires diligence to unwrap and wrap the container, but it
worked.

A short-cut to the above mentioned technique, was to use a clean pint paint,
place the Wheaton bottle in the can and push the lid down tight, then place
the entire can in a Ziplock bag.

Regards,
Ken

We use Osmium in our lab and keep it in the refrigerator.
We keep it in a glass bottle and cover the lid with
parafilm. Then we put that bottle in another bottle with a
screw top and wrap the bottle in foil. It works great, our
refrigerator doesn't have and black residue, just the two
bottles.

Subject: [Microscopy] Re: Osmium vapors

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives
http://www.microscopy.com/MicroscopyListserver/MicroscopyArchives.html

Working with undergraduates in a small (yet multiuser) lab, I have had
concerns about handling and storing osmium tetroxide for years. My
solution (which may not be practical for everyone) is that only sealed
ampoules are stored in the fridge (in their original shipping can and
packing materials). Vials are opened one at a time, the solutions are
mixed and used, tissues are exposed, left-over supplies are stored, and
waste is kept ONLY in the fume hood. In other words, opened supplies of
osmium never leave the fume hood (until disposal as toxic waste). If a
cold solution is needed, and ice bath can be used. We mix just about
enough for each procedure, and the unused left-over Os04 working
solution is kept in a small glass jar in the hood for the next
procedure. So we have no blackened refrigerator surfaces and no Os04
fumes accumulating in the fridge (or escaping into the room). It seems
to me that this approach could be expanded for a larger lab.

Subject: [Microscopy] Osmium vapors

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives
http://www.microscopy.com/MicroscopyListserver/MicroscopyArchives.html

The simplest solution to this problem is not to keep your osmium in the
refrigerator. I keep mine in a glass Schott bottle with plastic cap which
is then stored within a plastic container in the fume hood. I am not sure
if light effects the osmium but to be sure, I wrap the plastic container in
aluminum foil. There is leakage from the glass bottle because over time,
the inside of the plastic container goes black. Anything that leaks past
the secondary container goes up the fume hood. Once every year or two, I
splurge and replace the bottle and container. I don't experience
"pre-mature" darkening of my 2% osmium stock which typically lasts about
2-3 months before I use it all up. Tom Phillips

NA is 0.5 of AA. Or more correctly NA = n(sine of (AA/2)). The notation n
is the refractive index between your lens and the glass slide or cover
slip, usually air n=1.0000. This isn't very helpful is it? AA or angular
aperture is a measure of the angle which describes the largest come of
light your objective will accept or your condenser will produce.
Resolution depends (simple theory) capturing as many of the defracted rays
from a sample as possible. The bigger the cone the more rays you capture
and the more resolution you have and the more you can magnify the sample.

Optics meant to be used in air always have an NA less than 1. Those using
oil, glycine or water have a NA greater than one. Condensers typically
have a higher NA than your assortment of objectives because they have to
accommodate many objectives. You reduce the NA of a condenser by closing
the condenser iris down. If you have the correct illumination set up you
can remove an eyepiece and watch the condenser iris close in the back focal
plane of the objective. Most of us close it a little past the edge of the
objective back focal plane 'cause we like it contrasty.


So your condenser is an meant to use in air while your objective is an oil
emersion. Never, never, say it with me, never put beans in your nose or
oil on a condenser with an NA of 0.9.

The best resolution you can get with your system is to oil the objective to
the slide and use the condenser in air. Frankly, it's just OK that way and
in my opinion it's oil immersion is never worth the work (OK you can flame
me now...) You need to oil both the condenser and objective to the slide
(assuming you have the right thickness slide, cover slip and your sample
has sufficient contrast by staining or difference in refractive index) to
get the most out of your optical system. I'm a microscopist cause I'm a
big sloppy guy and this is all too much trouble for me.

Sound like a homework question, so good luck!!!!

Dear Sophia,

In air a na of .9 is all that is possible with out oiling the
condenser to the slide. Condensers made with .9 na make better
images with out oil than 1.2 na to 1.4 na oil immersion
condensers with out oil. Also simple Abby condensers have a good
deal of chromic aberration at wide apertures.

The combination of those and the fact that most users don't take
the time to oil the condenser to the bottom of the slide
resulted in many microscope makers using .9 na condensers. For a
in depth discussion of the problems of large na condenser and
other things see Ted Clark's piece
http://www.modernmicroscopy.com/main.asp?article=53 in Modern
Microscopy. Other work on lighting by Ted Clarke is referenced
at http://www.couger.com/microscope/Ted-Clarke/

You asked a good questioning about the aperture of the
condenser. To get the full performance form an objective the
condenser and light train need to be the same quality and na as
the objective. That is usually only a real consideration for
study at high resolution and high resolution microphotography.
The limiting factor in any optic system is its weakest link. In
micosopes this often the lighting and/or condeser.

The numerical aperture is a rating for how much light comes through. A
variety of design factors that I can't explain affect the value. An
excellent source of information for your class is available on the Olympus
site. I've pasted the address of the page discussing objectives and N.A.
below. From there you can navigate throughout their entire primer.

http://olympusmicro.com/primer/anatomy/objectives.html

I don't have any connection to Olympus and other manufacturers may also have
excellent technical information up on the web. I suggested this site
because I found it to be very well organized, illustrated, and easy to
understand. Aside from the liberal use of the "Olympus" label, the
discussions are based on science, not a sales pitch. I hope this helps.

Dear Veselin,

The numerical aperture is the light collecting ability of a specific piece of optics. It depends on two factors: half the actual collecting angle and the refractive index of the immersion fluid. The equation is:
NA=n x sin a where n = ri of the immersion fluid (air is 1.00, oil is 1.5212, water is 1.33, for example) and " a" is the half angle.

Your question is an interesting one for several reasons.

First, both the NA of the condenser and the NA of the objective contribute to resolution: (Equations are difficult to send by email, but here is the basic equation:)
R = [1.2 L]/[NAo + NAc] where 1.2 is a shape factor (Bessel function) reflecting the round apertures we use in the microscope, "L" is the wavelength of light (you can use 500nm or 0.500microns as an average), and NAo = NA objective; NAc = NA condenser.

Interestingly, this equation is related to not only the ability to resolve spacing (R is actually the smallest distance between two objects which still permits them to be imaged as 2 separate entities), it also has impact on edge fidelity. As a result, higher NA optics (both objective and condenser) not only improve your ability to resolve fine detail, they also produce crisper, sharper edges.

Secondly, the NA's written on your glassware are only the general operating specs. If you close down the iris in the condenser, you limit the NA of the condenser. Since your condenser has a maximum NA of 0.9,it is not meant to be used with oil. On the other hand, your objective NA indicates that, for best imaging, a drop of the appropriate immersion oil should be placed between it and the top of your sample. If you don't follow this procedure, your images will not only lack clarity (immersion oil is considered to be an important optical component of the system), your objective will only operate with a "working NA" of approximately 0.9.

Finally, your question is very appropriate because, for optimum resolution, the NA of the condenser should match or exceed the NA of your objective. Your condenser does not meet this requirement. If you do the calculations with the Resolution equation above, you will see that you will limit the resolution available from your system. Since you are working at the High School level, this limitation will probably not have a serious impact on your work. If you eventually get involved with higher level research, I would recommend that you purchase a condenser which better fits your needs.

All of this is explained in "Optimizing Light Microscopy," a book still available through MME. For further information, please contact Ken Piel at kenpiel-at-mme1.com. (Tell him I sent you).

Hope this is helpful and good luck in your studies!

Hello to you all,

We keep our osmium solutions in Schott Duran laboratory bottles
(http://www.schott-duran.com/english/products/duran/detail/laborflaschen
.html), and keep the bottles in a paint can (a new one that never had
paint in it). This is then kept in our fridge. This arrangement seems to
keep the vapour contained (no marks in our fridge) and isn't a pain to
open up. I also keep a pottle of whole milk powder in there for spills.

Question to the list:

Our local safety inspector is concerned about the appearance
of the fridge where we stock our solution of osmium. As you
can expect the white interior of the fridge has turned grey with vapors
of osmium over the years. Although we are taking every precautions to
avoid leakage of osmium vapor from its container, this is a problem that
I have observed in every EM lab that I have worked in. Does someone on
the list have a method to store osmium in such a way as to avoid any
escape of vapor? Also, is there something we could put into fridge that
would trap osmium vapors as they leak out? Thanks for your advise.

Osmium vapours are not stopped by simple bottle tops. We buy ours
already made up. The bottle lids have a plastic (?) insert which is
effective.

Waste osmium is stored in any bottle which is then kept in what we can
in the UK a Kilner jar. It is made of glass, has a rubber seal and uses
wire to clamp the lid very tightly. Osmium vapours do not seem to pass
through rubber seals. Unfortunately new Kilner jars in my supermarket
have plastic seals - so an experiment will be required.

We use Osmium in our lab and keep it in the refrigerator.
We keep it in a glass bottle and cover the lid with
parafilm. Then we put that bottle in another bottle with a
screw top and wrap the bottle in foil. It works great, our
refrigerator doesn't have and black residue, just the two
bottles.

Dear Nestor,

will replies like these reach the sender? I mean, this question was posted
from AskAMicroscopist, not emailed by a list member, so I am afraid our
replies will not reach people like Veselin unless we explicity include
them in the address of our emails...

Skage,

We have been running an older version, S200 for some 15 years. Overall, it
has had an excellent service history (mostly replacing vacuum pumps and
occasional chips, resistors, capacitors, etc).

We are a metallurgy lab, so our samples tend to be conductive and dry. The
large sample chamber is a real plus as is the nice stage. Also, we are not
heavy users and kept limited access with regard to number of users. We do
miss having direct digital imaging, which I presume the S250 has. Your
situation may be very different than ours. Newer scopes offer partial
vacuum capabilities and probably better ultimate resolution.

Other than being an older instrument (not always a bad thing) without
some of the newer bells and whistles, I have no regrets and we look forward
to many more years of service from it.

Subject: [Microscopy] best knife angle

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives
http://www.microscopy.com/MicroscopyListserver/MicroscopyArchives.html


I had known at one time, but I suppose due to age, I can't remember, but I'm
hoping that people here could advise me as to the best knife angle to buy on
a Diatome knife. All our specimens are human biopsy tissue embedded in
epon. I'd like to buy a histo-knife, and I was under the impression that 45
degrees would be the best sort of knife angle for routine use like this. Is
this correct?

I use a 45 for normal work. I find it works very well. I have a 35 I
use for special work. 35 has some advantages, but is not as robust.

it has been a while since i have purchased a knife. 48
degrees should work well for biological tissue.
if you have doubts, questions or concerns i recommend
contacting staci kirsh at electron microscopy
sciences, she is an invaluble resource.

I have had 45 degree diamonds for most of my career but last year bought a
35 degree one. I think there is a significant improvement for the lymphoid
tissue we are cutting these days. I hear they wear out faster but I don't
do a ton of sectioning so the tradeoff seems worth it. Tom

I apologize to the list for the unnecessary messages. We have recently started using the automated reply feature of our email server with some unexpected results. Attempts to repair the auto-reply logic have (so far) failed. Hopefully, my unsubscribe request will be processed soon. Again, I apologize for wasted bandwidth.

Skage,
It might also depend on what you're trading for it. Some older SEMs might
be worth trading while others might be better kept in your lab.

Hello Everyone
Our lab has been offered a refurbished
Cambridge S-250 electron microscope in exchange for
another SEM unit.

Do anyone have anyone have strong opinions of this instrument ?
or know of any advice I should heed before agreeing to such a trade in ?

Thanks ,

Subject: [Microscopy] best knife angle

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives

Diatome suggest for their 'ultra' diamond knives, that 45 degree is
good for routine sections. 35 degree apparently offers less section
distortions in biology and materials science. 55 degree is best for
really hard ceramics and similar materials

The Diatome article offers two references:
1. J.C. Jesior; How to avoid compression; Jnl. of Ultrastructure &
Molecular Structure Res. 95, 210-217 (1986)
2. J.C. Jesior; Use of low-angle diamond knives leads to improved
ultrastructural preservation of ultrathin sections; Scanning Microscopy
Supplement 3, 147-153 (1989); Scanning Microscopy International,
Chicago (AMF O'Hare) IL 6066 USA.

This information came out of a Diatome colour brochure which I must
have received some time in the last 10 years or so. I do not have the
actual references.

NB Incidentally Diatome do market a 'Histo' knife but it is really
intended for light microscopy sections rather than ultrathin ones
('Ultra' knives).

Good luck

unless i have forgotten, diatome also/used to market a
semi diamone kife that would cut semi thin sections as
well as thin sections. of course the memory is the
first thing to go.

Skage,
I'm not really familiar with either model, but maybe someone on the list is
and can give you some recommendations. You might also try contacting Earl
Weltmer of Scanservice Corp.
earlw-at-sbcglobal.net
as he is familiar with more makes and models than I am.

Skage,
It might also depend on what you're trading for it. Some older SEMs might
be worth trading while others might be better kept in your lab.

Hello Everyone
Our lab has been offered a refurbished
Cambridge S-250 electron microscope in exchange for
another SEM unit.

Do anyone have anyone have strong opinions of this instrument ?
or know of any advice I should heed before agreeing to such a trade in ?

Thanks ,

Fellow listers:

Just a reminder that the "Reply" functionality of the
list has recently changed.

Currently, when you "Reply" to a message, the e-mail
is sent to the entire list, not just the original
sender. I believe that this is/was a biproduct of
Nestor's efforts to minimize SPAM (great job Nestor,
keep up the good work).

This is different than in the past, when a "Reply"
only went to the author of the post you were replying
to.

While this makes it easier to reply and have a post go
to the group, it also seems to have spawned a number
of messages there were meant for specific individuals,
but made their way to the entire group.

Not necessarily a problem, but in some cases it could
be...

I noticed the Tungsten Carbide knives in a catalog, and wondered if this
sort of knife would be at all suitable to cut 0.7 micron sections of Epon
embedding biological material. Currently we are using histo-diamond knives,
but it is my dream to be able to use a more durable, cheaper knife that
gives the same result. I was just wondering if anyone has tried this, and
what sort of result they might get with epon. Or is it a stupid idea?

Subject: [Microscopy] Knife angle

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives
http://www.microscopy.com/MicroscopyListserver/MicroscopyArchives.html

Although I am only familiar with so-called 'hard' materials microtomy
(metals, alloys, minerals, ceramic fibers and the like) the interesting
point about the knife angle in this area is that the 35 sections better for
all of the above materials in my lab, so the 45 knives gather dust. Since
wear is a function of the amount of sectioning as well as type of material,
I cannot comment on that aspect, but can note that we never had any damage
to the 35 except when we deliberately tried to do so on ~20 micron,
extremely hard amorphous alloys particles. (It was not pretty!).

The success of the lower angle is no fluke, as Helmut Gnaegi of Diatome has
gotten good sections of; 200 micron quartz particles, polysilicon/metal
layers on a single crystal silicon substrate, carbon fibers (but care had to
be used or nicks would occur), superconducting oxide and Ti implants in
bone. Phil Swab (with a coatings company in California) has sectioned many
optical glass coatings, and layers of boron nitride and artificial diamond
on single crystal silicon substrate. To the best of my knowledge, both of
these specialists had trouble with any other angles.

My theory is that, for most of the above examples, the knife edge only
initiates a crack in the fairly brittle material which is then 'wedged open'
across the block face by the angle of the knife, hence the reduced damage
with reduced angle (though section breakup does occur).

Finally, we did a bit of fooling around with histo knives a few years back.
Far from being only good for semithins, though 1 micron thick sections of
aluminum were produced, they produced some of the thinnest, flattest
sections we ever obtained (~10 nm for nanocrystalline metals) and was the
only knife that produced decent ~20 nm thick sections of the above amorphous
alloy particles. Go figure.

I have had 45 degree diamonds for most of my career but last year bought a
35 degree one. I think there is a significant improvement for the lymphoid
tissue we are cutting these days. I hear they wear out faster but I don't
do a ton of sectioning so the tradeoff seems worth it. Tom

the histo knife should last for years in the hands of
a careful tech. and if you are using the sections for
orientation a few knife scratches should matter. just
be sure to not let an inexperienced person use them.

I have used the Tungsten Carbide knives some. They are not sharp enough to
cut sub-micron thick sections as they leave a slight snowy appearance to the
block face. I have been successful in cutting plastic embedded tissue
sections of approximately 3-5 microns with them. The edge stays good much
longer than glass does. They are great for working with harder materials.
After applying per-mount and coversliping the sections, the snowiness is no
longer evident.

I noticed the Tungsten Carbide knives in a catalog, and wondered if this
sort of knife would be at all suitable to cut 0.7 micron sections of Epon
embedding biological material. Currently we are using histo-diamond knives,
but it is my dream to be able to use a more durable, cheaper knife that
gives the same result. I was just wondering if anyone has tried this, and
what sort of result they might get with epon. Or is it a stupid idea?

Another couple reminder about recent changes-

First, it used to be that a poster's personal name would appear in the
X-from: field and give a pretty good idea of their identity. (List rules
(http://www.msa.microscopy.org/MicroscopyListserver/Rules.html) ask that we
provide our real name as part of the post.) Recent changes have stripped
that field down to just the e-mail address. That makes messages look a lot
more anonymous than before. In fact, the original From: field is preserved
in the new stuff tacked on to the bottom of the post, but many of us
probably don't look those lines over. So, it is probably a good practice to
add a brief signature line so we clearly know who you are and can avoid
some of the recent confusion.

Second, there are those new lines of stuff tacked onto the end of the
posts. I encourage you all to trim those back as you reply to messages.
They add unnecessary bulk to the messages. A new set is always tacked on
anyway.

Cheers, even to those of you in Hawaii. I almost joined you there.

Exactly, Michael.

The problem with tungsten carbide is that it is actually a
microcrystalline alloy of tungsten carbide particles bonded with
cobalt, and this microstructure structure interferes with very thin
sections, much as with steel, but the carbide is harder and tougher,
which is why it is used to machine steel.

Knife facets may look quite shiny but they need to be polished much
flatter than a wavelength of visible light if they are to meet at a
smooth edge measured in the low nanometers, and thus be capable of
cutting the sub-100 nanometer sections appropriate for EM work.

The good thing about metal alloys is that the edge angle can be made
more acute while retaining the desired durability, but only at the
expense of minimum section thickness, so they are used for LM work.

Glass does well for EM knives because it is amorphous and thus has no
microstructure, while being hard enough to section. Of the hard
monocrystal alternatives to glass suitable for EM knives, only
sapphire, silicon carbide and diamond seem appropriate. All these are
good candidate materials for ultramicrotome knives, depending on cost
and other requirements.

yes i agree, glass knives are relativly cheap, fast?
depends on what you are using them for. histo knives
should last for years and can be used to face the
blocks as well. used one for years untill someone with
little experience got hold of it, i had never seen a
diamond with so many chips in it.
moral of the story, keep your knives close, but keep
your diamind knives to yourself.

We use bottles with rubber septums to store the liquid, and keep the
bottles within sealed falcon tubes, within a sealed bottle. This keeps
the vapours from leaking and discolouring the fridge.

Title-Subject: [Filtered] Drosophila eye ultrathin cryosections

Question: I have processed Drosophila eyes for immunolabelling (EM)
using the Tokuyasu technique and the results are, to say the least,
very disappointing. The eyes floated in the fixative which didn't
help matters. The problem looks to be spacial when I compare the
results to standard resin TEM preparation. Maybe there is some
problem with buffers, fixation or section expansion. Does anyone
have experience of these tough little beasties?

Question: Hi,

I'm not too familiar with these despite the fact I have two of them
gathering dust. But I have heard them disfavorably compared to the
S200. Mine may be site-rigged for handling semi wafers (and there's a
chance both came from the same facility, at different times... a
hunch) but in mine the stage uses little more substantial than pvc
tubing to transmit the z-axis knob to the stage: horrible hysteresis.

I suspect these and related scopes were enormously popular, and I
know for a fact this 'scope has die-hard fans.

LaB6 is typical but it wouldn't surprise me if there was an active
aftermarket upgrade to FE: indeed one of mine may have one. On the
other hand, you may have missed the bulk of the aftermarket boat by
about 5 years: lots of parts for old scopes falling off of price
lists.... but sometimes onto "clearance" lists :)

But I'd say even if your own scope leaves a lot to be desired,
trading it for another old scope like this? I'd say deosn't quite
make sense unless you have a special requirement. Ultimately, it just
may not be worth the shipping: which of course is dicey unless
there's at least a few hours teardown and re-assembly. Better the
devil you know.

I hope more people respond, I've been back and forth as to whether to
try to get one or both of mine working for about 6 years now :)

-Jeff

Question: I don't have experience with osmium compounds, and my
suggestion may not be very practical (read: expensive) unless you
have piles of vacuum fittings lying around like I do, but on occasion
when wanting to "absolutely" seal something up I've used a KF50
stainless nipple (or bellows, sometimes)of appropriate length, a pair
of stainless blanks, clamps, o-rings etc. so that the item could be
sealed "vacuum tight". Of course it's all relative but I wouldn't
think much vapour will diffuse though the ~5mm of highly compressed
Viton. The clamps are a bit clumsy to put on but very quick to come
off: I'm not sure you can get a quick-release clamp in KF50 but that
would make it almost one-handed. You could probably save money and
thru-gassing by having a single-ended arrangment, ie: a pipe section
with a KF50 flange welded on one end and a cap welded on the other.
Some (if not most) of the hi-vac houses weld their standard catalog
items on-site, and some don't charge much extra (~%20 premium) for
custom items from stock parts.

I think the idea of absorbants/reactants holds a lot of potential.
Activated charcoal comes immediately to mind.
Is it so reactive as to present a fire hazard if quickly adsorbed
onto the huge surface area?

Title-Subject: [Filtered] further hardening of LR White

Question: I have tried embedding large samples (~ 1cm3) of porous
rock material in a variety of resins and find that LR White (Hard)
provides the best infilling due to its low viscosity. That being
said, the blocks are not as hard as when using epoxide resins such as
EMBED 812. I am cold-curing (i.e. with accelerator) at both room
temperature and at 4?C with mixed results, but even in the best case
the blocks are not as hard as I would expect. My question: can I
further harden the blocks by now placing these samples in the oven at
60?C? My reasoning is that resin within the block (i.e. beneath the
surface and therefore not exposed to oxygen) will proceed with
polymerization at a faster rate than if I left the blocks at room
temperature. Or is the reaction now at completion? Thanks

Question: What is the maximum resolution achievable in Phase Contrast
and also Interferential Contrat DIC microscopy.
Since in bright field it is appr 1.40 I am sure that because of the
phase rings as well as the use of Wollaston prism in DIC, it must be
much lower even using oil immersion objective.

One concern I have always heard was the formation of metal azide,
especially lead azide. These explosive and unstable have been found in
older metal plumbing. When I started as a QC chemist years ago, dilute
concentrations of sodium azoide was used as a perservative in some test
solutions used in clinical chemistry. One than one person got an
unpleasent surprize when working with the older style lead drain pipes. I
later wanted to use a test solution for sulfur which contained sodium
azide, my management had fits. I never did use that test.

I don't want to creat an electron storm of words, but I will suggest you
check out disposial method for your own safety.

Dear Meghan,
The preparation methods for any sample on which you are doing EDS or
other analytic techniques must take into account the elements you are
trying to analyze, so, for example, if you are looking for
water-soluble elements like Na or Cl ion, do not rinse the tissue in
solvents that will remove them. Note, however, that if you are looking
for Cl bound in organic compounds, such as polychlorinated biphenyls,
washing out the ion will enable you to distinguish the organochlorine.
For accurate quantitation, it is a good idea, if possible, to examine
the material untreated, except for freezing and perhaps sectioning,
then dehydrate by lyophylization in the scope and redo the analysis.
This will give accurate values for volatile elements and you can
improve the quantitation by taking the wet/dry ratios from elements
that are not affected by the drying process. Another consideration,
for the case that the elements of interest are not affected by your
preparation process, is not to use a stain that interferes with lines
from those elements. Pb and S are notorious for this, and one case I
ran into was trying to analyze Pt and Ir in a specimen that was treated
with Os and given to me. Since your specimens may not be suitable for
observation in the TEM when not prepared in some way, and since you may
not have access to cryopreparation methods, you need to keep in mind
the general principles that, whatever the preparation steps, they
cannot affect the concentration of the elements of interest, and cannot
interfere with the lines you want to measure. Good luck.
Yours,

Subject: [Microscopy] Looking for tiny holes

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives
http://www.microscopy.com/MicroscopyListserver/MicroscopyArchives.html

Hi:

A guy came into the lab today asking me to image and measure some holes in
a silicon nitride wafer.

OK, I say, how big?

2 nm he says, some maybe up to 70 nm.

That's pretty small, I said. How did you plan on doing it?

Don't know, that's why I came to you, says he.

Here is what he's got. A chip about 1 mm thick with an FIB section out of
it that is like an inverted pyramid into the chip. The pyramid doesn't go
all the way through, but there is a thin area at the bottom that is
supposed to have the tiny hole. The chip is opaque in the TEM, way too
thick, the thin area is translucent at 80KV so we can sort of see where we
are going.

We rigged up a special TEM holder so we could put the chip in the TEM, but
searching for the FIB hole, then the tiny hole inside that took a while.
Eventually I could see something that looked like a hole and it was about
100 nm across. He said that was OK, it was a test hole and should be about
100 nm.

Finding this 100 nm hole was no picnic and I anticipate finding and
measuring a 2 nm hole to be harder. He wants to be able to pop one in and
check the diameter and pop in another one.

Anyone with some bright ideas about how to help this guy? We brainstormed
things like FESEM, AFM, some kind of diffraction with lasers, don't know if
any of them will work, don't have any more ideas.

Thanks

Subject: [Microscopy] RE: Looking for tiny holes

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives
http://www.microscopy.com/MicroscopyListserver/MicroscopyArchives.html

Any idea if there will be a single hole per sample or multiple holes? Will
you have any idea what the probable depth of the small hole will be (not
including the thinning they are apparently doing to the substrate)? The
hole's aspect ratio will have a lot to do with any analysis since a large
ratio (small diameter hole, long bore) can make alignment with any imaging
system a big problem.

This is probably a good time to jump in and see if they can't adjust their
experiment a little. Too often researchers jump before they can walk, and
assume that an existing method can provide whatever information they need,
without providing any compliance to existing techniques. A thinner
substrate would require less preliminary FIB thinning on their part and if
it were thin enough, could allow you to determine and measure the presence
of a hole even if the bore weren't perfectly aligned with the beam.

While they may be reluctant to discuss the work they are doing, details
aren't really needed. It may be in their best interest to understand the
hole formation process before extending it to such a thick substrate that
requires multiple operations. Unfortunately, it may be up to you to point
that out.

} Hi:
}
} A guy came into the lab today asking me to image and measure some holes
in
} a silicon nitride wafer.
}
} OK, I say, how big?
}
} 2 nm he says, some maybe up to 70 nm.
}
} That's pretty small, I said. How did you plan on doing it?
}
} Don't know, that's why I came to you, says he.
}
} Here is what he's got. A chip about 1 mm thick with an FIB section out of
} it that is like an inverted pyramid into the chip. The pyramid doesn't go
} all the way through, but there is a thin area at the bottom that is
} supposed to have the tiny hole. The chip is opaque in the TEM, way too
} thick, the thin area is translucent at 80KV so we can sort of see where
we
} are going.
}
} We rigged up a special TEM holder so we could put the chip in the TEM,
but
} searching for the FIB hole, then the tiny hole inside that took a while.
} Eventually I could see something that looked like a hole and it was about
} 100 nm across. He said that was OK, it was a test hole and should be
about
} 100 nm.
}
} Finding this 100 nm hole was no picnic and I anticipate finding and
} measuring a 2 nm hole to be harder. He wants to be able to pop one in and
} check the diameter and pop in another one.
}
} Anyone with some bright ideas about how to help this guy? We brainstormed
} things like FESEM, AFM, some kind of diffraction with lasers, don't know
if
} any of them will work, don't have any more ideas.
}
} Thanks

Dear Dr.Henderson,

I noticed with interest your recent employment note on the Microscopy
listserver and hope that you are having good success.

Our publication, Microscopy Today, is mailed six times per year to
nearly 15,000 microscopists -- each of whom has either specifically
requested the publication or were automatically subscribed as an MSA
member benefit. Our next issue closes on August 15th and will be mailed
on or about September 15th. You may consider placing your employment ad
with us.

We offer employment advertisements at the reduced rate of $450 for a
quarter-page (3 5/8 in. W X 5 in H) insertion. Larger (3 5/8"
W)employment ads can be purchased for an additional $90 per inch over 5
inches high.

Should you be interested, normal procedure is for you to supply your
text by email , or fax the copy to us at (727) 507-7102. We will
typeset, add a border, etc., and email back a PDF draft copy of the
advertisement with a quote at no obligation to you. After your price
approval, proof, changes, corrections, and billing instructions, are
received, we will publish. You may include a logo if you wish.

Kindly advise rather soon should you be interested in this proposal as
the timing for this issue is becoming critical.

Regards,

Ron Anderson, Editor
Microscopy Today

Why use sodium azide?

We are planning to use sodium azide for the first time as we wish to
store SEM samples for 3-4 months (rare samples available now for a
student project in November). I have found that very occasionally
something can grow in sodium cacodylate buffer. I think there are some
fungi that like it :)

I've seen it as a constituent of a TEM fixative, so it shouldn't be a
problem. But why bother?

} } Hi:
} }
} } A guy came into the lab today asking me to image and measure some holes
} in
} } a silicon nitride wafer.
} }
} } OK, I say, how big?
} }
} } 2 nm he says, some maybe up to 70 nm.
} }
} } That's pretty small, I said. How did you plan on doing it?
} }
} } Don't know, that's why I came to you, says he.
} }
} } Here is what he's got. A chip about 1 mm thick with an FIB section out of
} } it that is like an inverted pyramid into the chip. The pyramid doesn't go
} } all the way through, but there is a thin area at the bottom that is
} } supposed to have the tiny hole. The chip is opaque in the TEM, way too
} } thick, the thin area is translucent at 80KV so we can sort of see where
} we
} } are going.
} }
} } We rigged up a special TEM holder so we could put the chip in the TEM,
} but
} } searching for the FIB hole, then the tiny hole inside that took a while.
} } Eventually I could see something that looked like a hole and it was about
} } 100 nm across. He said that was OK, it was a test hole and should be
} about
} } 100 nm.
} }
} } Finding this 100 nm hole was no picnic and I anticipate finding and
} } measuring a 2 nm hole to be harder. He wants to be able to pop one in and
} } check the diameter and pop in another one.
} }
} } Anyone with some bright ideas about how to help this guy? We brainstormed
} } things like FESEM, AFM, some kind of diffraction with lasers, don't know
} if
} } any of them will work, don't have any more ideas.
} }

} The thickness at a hole depends upon whether a precipitate fell out, which
leaves a thicker region around a hole. If a hole is formed by electropolishing
an annealled sample of a pure metal, or even some alloys, the area around the
hole may be very thin. 20 to 50 nanometers might be typical thicknesses
achieved.

I saw that yesterday. I guess things are working out for Scott, if
his lab is growing. That's good.

Colleagues;

I believe I have plugged the loop-hole that allowed the Housing
for Sale Email to get through the system earlier today. It was
a unique situation to say the least, but then again they are all
getting this way.

At the same time since I was editing the code I have also changed the
Listserver Software so that a reply should nolonger go automatically
to the Listserver but to the sender.

Nevertheless I caution you to please always look at what your sending.
It only takes a moment.

If you wish to send a copy of your "reply" to a message to the Listserver
you will now have to explicitly add the Listserver Email
address (microscopy-at-microscopy.com ) to your recepients list

Nestor
Your Friendly Neighborhood SysOp

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives

Sodium azide should be used very carefully. It has been used as a biological
preservative for a long time. In 1968 I was working in a CDC lab in Phoenix
(Yes, there was a CDC branch there at that time) where we used sodium azide to
preserve hepatitis antigens. One of the technicians was using an aspiration
tube attached to a pipette to transfer sodium azide solution to an antigen
preparation. She coughed and sucked the solution into her lungs. She was on
the floor gasping for breath within 15 seconds. There was an MD sitting in
his office next to the technician's lab. He heard her fall to the floor. He
new what she was doing and determined what had happened. He had what he
called a "universal antitdote" in his office. He administered the antidote
and gave her mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and she survived.

I know (I hope!!) people don't use aspiration tubes today but this incident
sure brought home to me how how quickly sodium azide works. You may want to
look at the following CDC URL:
http://www.bt.cdc.gov/agent/sodiumazide/basics/facts.asp Although
this article states that there is no specific antidote for sodium azide
poisoning, in the incident I related above, an antidote was given. I don't
remember what it was.

Sodium azide should be used very carefully. It has been used as a
biological preservative for a long time. In 1968 I was working in a
CDC lab in Phoenix (Yes, there was a CDC branch there at that time)
where we used sodium azide to preserve hepatitis antigens. One of
the technicians was using an aspiration tube attached to a pipette to
transfer sodium azide solution to an antigen preparation. She
coughed and sucked the solution into her lungs. She was on the floor
gasping for breath within 15 seconds. There was an MD sitting in
his office next to the technician's lab. He heard her fall to the
floor. He new what she was doing and determined what had happened.
He had what he called a "universal antitdote" in his office. He
administered the antidote and gave her mouth-to-mouth resuscitation
and she survived.

I know (I hope!!) people don't use aspiration tubes today but this
incident sure brought home to me how how quickly sodium azide works.
You may want to look at the following CDC URL:
http://www.bt.cdc.gov/agent/sodiumazide/basics/facts.asp
Although this article states that there is no specific antidote for
sodium azide poisoning, in the incident I related above, an antidote
was given. I don't remember what it was.

} I've seen it as a constituent of a TEM fixative, so it shouldn't be a
} problem. But why bother?
