The pressing tools, used in the preparation of the samples needed for example for such nuclear elemental analysis methods as PIXE, PIGE and RBS, have been coated with a diamond-type 12C-layer by ion beam deposition. Using carbon-coated pressing tools prepared in this way contamination of the sample surfaces during the pill pressing operation is avoided.
