On a high resolution pre-shadowed carbon replica method and its direct stripping technique
In order to improve the resolution of a replica (usually called “atomic replica”) made by direct application of vacuum evaporation on the surface of a specimen, it is necessary to reduce the thickness of the replica film as mentioned by Calbick (1). On the other hand, however, from the standpoint of the replica preparation technique, a certain thickness is required, beyond which it is impracticable to reduce it.
