In the study, investigated is the relationship between the thickness of metal coatings produced by ion beam sputtering and the quality of imaging obtained by SE and BSE of biological samples. Imaging of surface topography by BSE was achieved at thinner metal coatings than by SE. The BSE imaging was relatively independent of local surface charging and likewise of contamination, due to higher energy of BSE.
