Ceramaseal® UHV Components

Ceramaseal® products include feedthroughs, multipin connectors, coaxial connectors, thermocouples, isolators, viewports, and vacuum hardware. These components are ideally suited to support optical, gas, liquid, power, instrumentation, and sensing applications. All of these products are built to endure extreme conditions, whether it be an ultra-high vacuum (UHV) environment, temperatures ranging from cryogenic (4 K) to 450 degree C , pressures in excess of 25,000 psig, corrosive or caustic environments, while maintaining an unsurpassed level of reliability and performance.

Thin Film Measurement and Vacuum Control

INFICON is a leading provider of innovative instrumentation, critical sensor technologies, and advanced process control software that enhance productivity and quality in sophisticated industrial vacuum processes. These analysis, measurement and control products are essential for gas leak detection in air conditioning/refrigeration and automotive manufacturing. They are vital to equipment manufacturers and end-users in the complex fabrication of semiconductors and thin film coatings for optics, flat panel displays, solar cells and industrial vacuum coating applications. Other users of our vacuum-based processes include the life sciences, research, aerospace, packaging, heat treatment, laser cutting and many other industrial processes. We also leverage our expertise in vacuum technology to provide unique, toxic chemical analysis products for emergency response, security, and environmental health and safety.

Vacuum Evaporation Sources

Vacuum evaporation by electrical resistance heated sources is often a preferred entrance level technique for the deposition of thin films. The process can be easy to master. If smaller dimensioned sources are chosen, the less expensive laboratory sized coating plants can be used. It is possible to ramp the process up to a large production scale by the use of the bigger sources and multiples of them- sometimes in extremely large capacity high vacuum chambers. The technique may not be the best for some thin film materials and applications; electron beam evaporation or sputtering are just two alternative techniques, but resistance heated evaporation sources often produce good cost effective results, and are in regular use.
