A dual-PLD system

This home-made Pulsed Laser Deposition chamber has been fully assembled and connected to the one already operational through a ultra-high vacuum transfer tube, creating an innovative dual-PLD system.

PLD-I is used for oxides and PLD-II for metals, so as not to oxidize the metals present in this chamber.

The UHV transfer system will be exploited for the growth of heterostructures with excellent quality interfaces, with the possibility to transfer in UHV to other measurement systems thanks to our vacuum suitcases.

To learn more about how our UHV transfer systems work, watch the VIDEO.
