Sample and DAC Preparation
Top Industrie DAC Gas Loader
Custom DAC gas loader. Operating pressure up to 3000 bar. Ability to load both inert (Ar, Ne, He) and corrosive (e.g. H2) gases. Ability to measure the pressure in-situ (Ruby marker) during loading. Remote control of the compressor on a touchable screen and pneumatic valves.
Microscope Built-In Micromanipulator
The system allows the direct handling of samples in the microscale. Integrated with a built-in Microscope connected with the PC allowing even inexperienced users to perform complicated and delicate procedures by just controlling a computer mouse.
Table-top laser drilling and micromachining system used for gaskets, preparing samples and sample environments for DAC experiments. Ability to drill holes of <10 micrometers and of drilling non-conductive materials.
Compact system to measure pressure through ruby luminescence. A 405 nm laser is used together with an Ocean optics spectrometer
Single-Station Glove Box
Single-station glove box, continuously maintain a high-purity inert gas environment with less than 1ppm O2. Automatic control of: air pressure; gas purification system; regeneration process of the gas purification system.
