Surface Science

For contamination and interference-free analysis

Surface science research widely utilises UHV conditions to provide contamination and interference-free analysis. In this area, secure sample transfer and precise manipulation during analysis are essential. What’s more, sample heating and cooling are often required as well.

Configurable for specific requirements

We provide a range of UHV compatible sample transfer devices. These are developed specifically to ensure the reliable and repeatable transfer of common sample holders, e.g. flag and pucks. Crucially, our sample manipulators are modular so they can be configured to meet specific application requirements.

Key features

  • Full motorisation
  • Addition of encoders (incremental or absolute)
  • Resistive heating up to 900 °C
  • EB heating up to 1200 °C
  • Liquid nitrogen cooling to -160 °C
  • Liquid helium cooling to 20K

Secure Sample Transfer Options

Transfer Arms

  • Secure sample transfer with high-performance magnetically-coupled transfer arms
  • Extensive range to transfer specific industry-standard sample holders using a variety of actuation methods
  • Standard transfer lengths up to 1,219mm
  • Custom options are available

Sample Manipulators

Our high precision stages have been designed to address the ever-increasing demands of today's surface analytical and synchrotron end-station applications. Offering high precision and rigidity, our range of sample manipulators can be configured with a range of options for X, Y, Z and sample rotations (R1 & R2). Additionally, we also offer the choice of actuation and control options:
