For square or rectangular samples up to 2″ and holds the sample securely at a 45° angle, for an accurate scribe by the FlipScribe®. A unique hold-down bar designed to firmly hold the sample.

To gain performance advantages, some devices are designed with the lithography printed at 45° relative to silicon (100). This is problematic as it’s not possible to cleave along the natural crystal plane. Using the FlipScribe® and 45° Rotated Holder, it is possible to scribe the backside of the sample and cleave with CleanBreak™ or Small Sample Pliers. The cleave can be parallel to or at 90° to the lithography.
