Abstract

A micro fluidic chamber with 178 nm-thick single crystal Si windows on a micro channel has been developed. Because of these thin windows, the aquatic sample inside of the channel can be observed by scanning electron microscopy. Secondary electrons from a sample in the channel are able to be detected in vacuum with an acceleration voltage of 15 kV, where the emission current is 75 μA. The micro fluidic chamber is possibly applied to cell imaging via the Si thin window in vacuum using magnetic resonance force microscopy.
