LECO’s CHNS-932 Elemental Analyzer is capable of determining the amount of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and sulfur present in a homogeneous aliquot weighing approximately 0.6–1.6mg (2.0mg maximum). An aliquot is weighed and placed into either a tin or silver capsule in which it is appropriately crimped. During the analysis, the aliquot is dropped into a furnace held at 1,000°C. At the same time the sample drops into the furnace, a dose of oxygen is released into the furnace. This causes the sample to readily combust forming gases of COX, H2O, N2, and SOX.

The Lesker CMS 18 Deposition System (PVD 4) is a 4 source RF, 2 source pulsed DC sputter deposition system.  Each source can accommodate 3” diameter targets of maximum 0.250” thickness. Conductors are best suited for DC sputtering. Insulators are best suited for RF sputtering. Oxide/nitride deposition is also possible via reactive sputtering, by utilizing pulsed DC sputtering and careful gas flow control.
