Title: SAMPLE HOLDER FOR SURFACE AND/OR CROSS-SECTION MICROSCOPY ANALYSIS OF A SOLID SAMPLE
Abstract:
The invention concerns sample holder (1). According to the invention, that the sample holder (1) comprises a sample receiving portion (5) rigidly linking a first portion (101) to a second portion (102), the first portion (101) comprising means for mechanically maintaining a holding surface (2) in contact with a portion of back-side surface (12) of the sample (10), the first portion (101, 201, 301) integrating at least one connector (7, 17, 19) configured for transmitting electric energy or electro-magnetic energy generated by an excitation source, to one or several areas of the front-side surface (11) and/or back-side surface (12) of the sample (10) and said sample holder (1, 21, 31) comprising at least one outer bearing surface (108) arranged for positioning said sample (10) in a microscope instrument for analysis on said front-side surface (11), back-side surface (12) and/or on a cross-section of the sample (10).
