Accessories for Ion Sources
In addition, STAIB Instruments offers a variety of useful accessories which can be ordered with the ion source.
Fully integrated multitasking control software for Windows™ XP, Windows™ 7, Windows™ 10
The computer control option for STAIB ion guns consists of two parts.
1: Power supply computer control plug
The ion source power supply is equipped with an optional computer connection plug for use with analog control signals. The ion source system can either be operated by using the manual control dials, or by using the optional computer control. The control voltages can either be provided by 3rd party software through a suitable DAC interface, or by the STAIB computer control module.
2: STAIB computer control module
The STAIB computer control option includes the cables and microprocessor interface to connect to the power supply computer control plug. The STAIB software sends the input signals to the power supply to control the system functions. Full parameter sets can be stored, modified, and reused. The advanced version of the STAIB computer control module can retrieve and copy the adjusted values from the manual control dials, providing the user with previously unavailable ease of use.
The option runs under the WindowsTM XP, WindowsTM 7, WindowsTM 10 operating systems, using a USB connection.
The beam current can be measured most preciseley with a UHV farady cup mounted next to or on the side of the standard STAIB Instruments sample holder.
Sample current in the range of 0.1 nA to 100 µA can be measured using the low noise current amplifier.
It can be used for electrons and ione with variable potential bias capability.
