Systematic inquiry in tests of negative/positive replica combinations for SEM

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


High resolution replica materials are routinely used in scanning electron microscopy. A systematic evaluating procedure for replica combinations is proposed which details fourteen points to be recorded. These points include quantitative and qualitative information useful when assessing a replica combination for a particular research problem. A case study employing one silicone‐based impression material and one epoxy resin is performed as an example of the procedure. 1985 Blackwell Science Ltd
