Slits in Vacuum Vessels

Many customers need to insert their slit systems inside larger vacuum vessels. In these cases, you will not need a slit system with flange connections (see our "Vacuum Slits") but rather a modified "AIR Slit". Occasionally, a beamline has extra sensible components such as mirrors or detectors in close vicinity of the slits. In these cases, extra precautions may be needed to avoid contamination.

Depending on your vacuum pressure and instrumentation, you can either go all the way and have an AIR Slit for UHV or you can replace some of the critical parts in our standard AIR Slits.
