One-zone and Three-zone Furnaces for Materials Processing

Wed, 07/17/2013 - 11:54 -- Melisa Xin

This facility allows processing of Tl- and Hg-based superconductors as well as nano-materials (nanowires/nanotubes) through vapor annealing at high temperatures up to 1100 C. We have one-zone furnaces for small samples and we also have a 3-zone furnace for better temperature uniformity and larger samples. These furnaces are housed in fume hoods to handle volatile and toxic vapors.
