Using antechambers samples or equipment can be exchanged without breaking these conditions. Top keep our two glove boxes as versatile as possible we maintain in both just an inert atmosphere (under slight overpressure) with extremely low humidity and oxygen values. Additionaly can one choose between an argon or a nitrogen atmosphere.The NanoLab FIB is placed in an electromagnetic field-free room on vibration isolated ground.
No samples, chemicals or equipment that will introduce humidity or oxygen or that produce other kinds of fumes or gaseous by products which are etchants.
