Accessories

HORIBA Scientific proposes accessories to handle various samples and multiply the possible applications:

  • Patented “Li bell” for measuring samples that should not be exposed to air
  • Patented Centrelite for precise localisation of the analysis spots
  • Small sample holder
  • Universal sample holder for non flat samples, tubes, rods
  • Various anodes (material and diameters): 2mm, 4mm, 6, 7 & 8mm anodes.
  • Patented RF coupler for thick non conductive layers (innovation derived from EU project - www.bulletins-electroniques.com)
  • Press
  • Kit to prepare pellet for analysis of powders
  • Preparation equipment machines
  • Profilometer: Provides the determination of optimum conditions to get flat craters and useful for measuring the sputtering rates.

Special configurations

Automatized instruments with robots or instruments in glove box have been designed and dedicated studies on such requirements can be conducted.

Nitrogen generators

HORIBA Scientific offers high purity nitrogen generators for all GD-OES systems. The nitrogen generators supplies nitrogen at 99.999% purity and flow rates from 3 L/min to 6.0 L/min for VUV analysis. Nitrogen purge permits to maintain intact the quality of the optics in time.
