Through the past 30 years Hiden quadrupole mass spectrometers have addressed ever-expanding high vacuum applications at pressures ranging from 10E-3 mbar through to the UHV/XHV regimes.
The products, detailed in the new catalogue, are engineered for fundamental base pressure evaluation through to sophisticated research-orientated projects.
All feature total software-driven system control with user selection and optimization of all key operating parameters.
Mass range options extend to 2500 amu, and ion detection is optionally available for positive and for negative ions for researchers requiring direct process ion analysis.
Ionization is by electron impact and ion sources are selectable for general gas analysis, for molecular beam monitoring and for surface evolution studies, enabling bespoke systems to be engineered for each specific project.
Typical applications include general residual gas measurement, high-pressure operation above 10E-3 mbar, molecular beam and residual gas measurement in MBE processes, pulse ion counting detection for fastest response and highest detection sensitivity for UHV and XHV applications, thermal and laser induced surface desorption and reaction studies.
