In-Situ (in UHV) Treatments
In-situ treatments of a surface or a sample usually requires additional equipment in a large sample load-lock or in a separate chamber.
The added equipment, if available, allows you, for example, to:
- Deposit films
- Heat samples to anneal them or clean them
- Cool systems to LN2 temperature and then fracture them to expose fresh bulk
- Diamond scribes or knives to scrape the surface while in UHV
