Foil Window Flange
An ultra thin aluminum or titanium UHV window that allows
for quick, inexpensive replacement in the field. An excellent alternative to
customers at a large Midwestern research university needed a very thin titanium
window for an electron optics application. The idea that they brought to us
included a permanently brazed approach that was, unfortunately, thick and
expensive to replace if the window failed. The customer wanted it to thinner
but found the risk of the part failing due to the force that brazing would
exert upon it, less than ideal.
solution, developed by Atlas, was a low cost replaceable and extremely thin
(.002”) titanium window trapped between a standard knife edge flange and, the
now new product, an Atlas Foil Window Flange. See the back page for more
product information. Among other benefits: No Beryllium and Low Z.
