REMOTE MONITORING (7f with PC-Automation)
Real Time Display software licence providing remote access to all instrumental parameters, thus allowing the operator to remotely tune and run the instrument from his/her own PC.
Isolation and Pumping of the Cesium Microbeam Source.
DUO-AUTO (6f equipped with Duoplasmatron source)
Computerised Duoplasmatron Source Control.
Low primary ion energy system for the duoplasmatron source.
Fast Airlock (6f)
For fast sample introduction: reduces sample introduction time by a factor of two to 1'30".
Storage Chamber Upgrade (6f/7f with PC-Automation)
Storage chamber with its load-lock designed to store up to six sample holders under high vacuum. Ensures substantial throughput improvements for applications that depend on the best UHV conditions.
RS10 Eucentric Rotating Stage (6f)
Sample rotation is a powerful technique to minimize roughening effects which may occur with certain sputtering conditions and matrices. For more information, download the technical note "Eucentric Rotating Stage".
Z-Axis manual movement for the sample stage.
Turbomolecular pump for the specimen chamber (to replace ion pump).
TURBOSPECTRO (7f with PC-Automation)
Turbomolecular pumps for the mass spectrometer (to replace the existing ion pumps, offers a good pumping speed in the mass spectrometer even for O2 molecules and therefore maintains abundance sensitivity at a good level while using the oxygen flooding.
Oxygen flodding attachment. Improves sensitivity for electropositive elements, improves depth resolution for low impact energy O2+ primary ion sputtering.
A high resolution color CCD Camera for the sample viewing system, with zoom optical system and variable field of view.
Secondary Optical System
Resistive Anode Encoder Ion Imaging Detector to acquire and digitalize ion microscope images in pulse counting mode for 2D or 3D quantitative analysis.
Postacceleration for the electron multiplier. Increases sensitivity when analysing heavy elements and when running the mass spectrometer at low secondary extraction voltage (<3 kV).
Motor driven apertures improving long term reproducibility and ease of use.
