Sample Mounting for a Hard Disk Spinner

When films need to be spun in moist environments or with a solvent-rich environment (and we have done both), it is convenient to have a spinner that is small and easily replaceable. A hard-disk spinner meets these needs. The spin rate of a hard disk is in the range typically used to spin thin layers, and old ones are readily available. The problem is how to attach a sample. We describe several means, give background and applicability for various sample types, and share some of our experiences.
