The K1050X Plasma Treatment Unit consists of a solid state RF generator and associated tuning circuits, dual process gas flow monitoring needle valve control and full or restricted vent control.
It has a cylindrical chamber with a rack out drawer system for ease of sample loading.
The vacuum system is a dual stage separate rotary vacuum pump or optional turbo pump backed by diaphragm pump.
The rack out drawer system can be exchanged for a vacuum loading port, for special cleaning applications in SEM/TEM.
This usually employs an oxygen/argon mix of gases, the oxygen removing the organic material (hydrocarbons) and the argon giving a surface etching of the sample.
