Mica Sheets for the Medical Industry
Freshly cleaved muscovite mica surfaces have an outstanding even surface, that are optically flat, clear, transparent, scratchless and free from fingerprints. There are very useful for electron microscopy for production of carbon support films, particle imaging, cell growing and thin film coating research. Muscovite mica sheets for the medical industry are also suitable as substrates for high resolution atomic force microcopy studies such as DNA, DNA-protein.
Mica is also widely used by Medical researchers who are using mica for the making of carbon support films, thin film coatings research, and some AFM studies where HOPG are used to taking place.
ASTM D-351 describes grading standards for mica.
