New high vacuum system

I'm building a physical vapor deposition rig, which will be an interesting tool for creating optical coatings, SEM sample preparation, and maybe even thin film transistors. So far, I only have the pump and Penning gauge connected to the chamber. Soon, I'll have high-current and high-voltage ports in the base plate for controlling the deposition process.


  1. nice projekt - respect!

  2. Fan spam!

  3. You might consider adding a cold trap, you can use dry ice and acetone as the coolant, or if you are feeling rich get some LN2
