Sample Environments

Different users have different needs. By offering the best possible controllability of the sample environment, we hope that all needs can be met and measurements can be conducted in extremely stable and well-defined conditions.

The following tools to control the sample and it's environment are avaialbe:
  • An optical microscope image is used to move the sample into the desired position for measurement.
  • An imaging ellipsometer enables to measure the optical properties of the sample in situ
  • Microfluidic options for investigating flow at interfaces
  • An in-situ sputter deposition chamber
We are currently developing the following environmental controls:
  • Heating and cooling of the sample
  • Humidity control around the sample
