A method of replicating glasses and glass ceramics at and near the sample surface
- 21 Downloads
A method for replicating glasses and glass-ceramics at and in close proximity to the surface is described. The replicas used are platinum-palladium pre-shadowed carbon replicas. The method consists of fracturing the sample and mounting it in such a manner that both the shadowing metals and the carbon substrate are deposited on the sample surface and cross-section simultaneously. Artefacts are discussed, and examples of the application of the method given.
