Plasma treatment can clean your probe or sample containers and makes them more hydrophilic. This can significantly improve your coating quality.
We recommend the following plasma treatment:
- Put the probe with the package into a plasma cleaner (without aluminum cover!).
- Air plasma clean the FluidFM chip for 30 seconds to 2 minutes at 18 W radio frequency power ("High" - Harrick PDC 32 G).
Adjust the power or time for your plasma setup accordingly.
