STEM Viewgraph of a Cross Section

The NWs were placed horizontally on a Si wafer then with the FEI Helios the Pt protection layer was deposited by E-beam and Ion-beam successively. Subsequently a TEM lamellae was prepared in maual mode (bottom left) and then imaged in STEM mode using the same FEI Helios featuring the core GaAs NW with an AlGaAs Shell (dark region in top and bottom right viewgraphs) and a GaAs outer shell. The work has been done by Dr. Jie Tian and Dr. Michael Gao using the ANFF ACT node dual beam FIB Helios.
