VG Scienta makes custom designed analysis chambers for electron spectroscopy. In order to provide the best possible experiment environment the chambers are magnetically shielded using mu-metal. Analysis chambers made of mu-metal as well as of stainless steel are offered. The stainless steel model is equipped with one or two mu-metal liners depending on the demands set by the science of interest.
VG Scienta has a long tradition of designing analysis chambers. The accumulated knowledge allows us to guarantee a magnetic residual field smaller than 0.1 μT when using a double liner. This extremely good shielding is required to achieve the best possible resolution and angular stability when doing spectroscopy on low kinetic energy electrons (<10 eV). For XPS measurements the 0.5 μT provided by a single mu-metal liner is sufficient.
The Scienta Standard Chambers are the perfecy starting point for an efficient chamber design process. The chambers accommodate the VG Scienta spectrometer, photon sources and maniplulators in ideal geometry. Since different experiments have different needs the Standard Chambers come in a number of different version.
