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 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 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 clean environment and shipped in slide mailers.
