EVEX40 Evaporation Source with In-Situ Exchangeable Crucible

December 2016

Our new EVEX40 watercooled evaporation source is an advanced technological concept, based on the well-established EV40FC evaporator for ultra clean thin film deposition.

The great advantage this new design of the EVEX40 offers, is the very quick and easy in-situ exchange of the crucible as it is mounted on a SHOMEVCRW flag style sample plate.

A swivable front lid offers easy access. All that's needed is a pincer-equipped wobblestick for quick exchange of multiple crucibles (e.g. for various materials) that can all be used with the same evaporation source.

Mini NexGeneration UHV Suitcase

September 2016

From small to mini!

We have developed an even smaller, lighter and more cost efficient version of our UHV suitcase. The VSN40M is equally reliable yet especially practical wherever space is at a premium.

The Mini NexGeneration UHV Suitcase is the ideal solution for carrying and transferring multiple samples at once under true UHV conditions from one instrument to another. The samples are held in a storage mechanism such as a stack of receptacles or a carousel. Should only a single sample holder need to be stored and transferred, this is also possible using a pincer grip, fork or similar instead of the storage option.

Just like the standard size UHV suitcase, the VSN40M is designed as a modular concept so that it can be adapted to suit your specific requirements.

After pumpdown with a membrane pump, the exsiccator holds a base pressure of approximately 25mbar over a period of several months. A pressure meter roughly indicates the vacuum level. The box can be filled with dry Nitrogen or Argon if desired. An overpressure valve is provided for safety reasons.

Standard and portable versions of the vacuum desiccator as well as a complete portable system including a small membrane vacuum pump are readily available.
