Sputter coating is a specialization of the sputtering technique designed to coat a substrate with gold. This is achieved by bombarding a material with argon causing the atoms on the surface of the material to vaporize and coating everything inside the vacuum chamber. This technique is used to coat a non-conducing sample with up to 20 [nm] of gold to improve the imaging performance scanning electron microscopy.
