Substrata offers a full suite of gold coated microscope slides at affordable prices.

All coatings are deposited under vacuum using electron beam evaporation. Applications include optics, nanotechnology, biotechnology and AFM applications.

We use premium BOROFLOAT® 33 (NEXTERION® Glass B) microscope slides which exhibit excellent chemical and temperature stability and durability, exceptional flatness, tight thickness tolerance, and roughness 1 nm RMS. More information on the glass can be found here.

BOROFLOAT® 33 and NEXTERION® are trademarks of Schott AG. 

We use a thin chromium adhesion layer (2-7 nm) between the glass and gold coating. This adhesion layer is optional and can also be replaced with titanium upon request. All glass slides are shipped in slide mailers.
