Electro-polishing of pure metals.
I need to polish samples of various metals for TEM analysis. Our goal is to determine the effect of ion bombardment on the dislocation structure of the metal. Mechanical polishing will introduce dislocations that may mask the effect of the ion bombardment. Is it possible to electropolish aluminum, iron, and other pure metals?
