UHV Ion Flood Gun / Ion Source for Sample Cleaning

UHV Ion flood gun / ion source for sample surface cleaning in UHV applications.

The UHV ion flood gun IS 40C1 is a compact, easy-to-use extractor type ion flood source for sample surface cleaning. It is mounted on a DN 40CF flange and powered by a slim, 19” rack mounted digital power supply.

The ion flood source generates a current of 15-25μA/cm2 (Argon) With Gaussian beam profile. The beam diameter and current density depend on the source-to-sample distance. The mounting length of the ion flood gun is adaptable to individual requirements (standard is 63mm).

There is a Direct Gas Inlet in the ionisation volume via an integrated DN 16CF port. The Y-oxide coated iridium filament is arranged in a non-line-of sight configuration is suitable for operation with all noble gases and with reactive gases such as O2, H2 and CH4 (but with correspondingly reduced lifetime).

The special arrangement of the accelerating electrode and anode ensures very long term stability characteristics. The ion current can be varied over a wide range.
