Substrata offers a full suite of silver coated microscope slides at affordable prices. All coatings are deposited under vacuum using electron beam evaporation. Applications include optics, nanotechnology, and AFM applications.


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