Ultra high vacuum deposition of atomic clusters

Until July 2003 we have performed all cluster deposition work in a modified high vacuum apparatus originally design for study of the Structure of atomic clusters.

We have now commisioned a new ultra high vacuum (UHV) cluster deposition system with the following features

  • base pressures ~10-10 torr
  • cluster size selection
  • cryogenic deposition
  • in-situ electrical measurements
