Portable Vacuum Case with a Sight-Glass

  • Summary:

    Presented invention describes portable vacuum case with two sight-glasses. The case is capable of transporting and measuring samples in high vacuum. Such conditions are required, for example, for semiconductors during their processing or characterization. Described vacuum case with dedicated sight-glasses is devised for both easy transport of samples, as well as their spectral characterization in the high vacuum without need to remove and transfer sample to another vacuum system. The case allows for studies of surface and composition of the sample by appropriate optical methods, such as spectroscopy in UV, visible or infrared spectral ranges, or ellipsometry.
