Does your vacuum process chamber require integrated cooling?

Vacuum systems often involve processes with significant heat output, requiring chambers with integrated cooling options. Applications with thermal management issues include: Vacuum Deposition (CVD, MOCVD, PVD and IBAD), Crystal Growth/Pulling, Space Simulation, and Vacuum Furnaces. Double Wall Chamber Double wall chamber designs are best for applications with very high heat loads. Separating chamber walls with […]

HIGH & LOW MAGNETIC PERMEABILITY MATERIALS FOR CUSTOM ULTRA HIGH VACUUM CHAMBERS

Mu-Metal and 316LN-ESR Stainless Steel are specialty alloys which offer very different levels of magnetic permeability. Applied Vacuum offers expert custom vacuum chamber fabrication capabilities for these and other specialized materials. Mu-Metal is a nickel-iron alloy (77 % Ni, 15 % Fe, plus Cu and Mo) with extremely high magnetic permeability at low field strengths. […]

UHV/PRESSURE VESSEL IN SUPPORT OF INTERNATIONAL NEUTRINO COLLABORATION – NEXT

In 1976, Dr. David R. Nygren developed the first Time-Projection-Chamber (TPC) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. TPC is a gas chamber that is instrumented to detect and image electrons resulting from ionization of gas molecules caused by high energy particles traversing the chamber. As a result, particle trajectories and interactions could be resolved in three […]
