SIMION 8 Ion and Electron Optics Program

The Industry Standard for Ion Optics Simulation Overview: SIMION Version 8 is a software package primarily used to calculate electric fields and the trajectories of charged particles in those fields when given a configuration of electrodes with voltages and particle initial conditions, including optional RF (quasistatic), magnetic field, and collisional effects. In this, SIMION 8 provides extensive supporting functionality in geometry definition, user programming, data recording, and visualization. It is an affordable but versatile platform, widely used for over 25 years to simulate lens,

Outgassing Rig and Soft Clean Room installed at ITER Vacuum Group

The Equipment SS Scientific is proud to supply some of the first essential pieces of equipment to the ITER Vacuum Group. Assuring vacuum quality is a key responsibility for the ITER Vacuum Group. “This means scrupulous testing during assembly and careful qualification of the materials that go into the vacuum vessel.” Currently based in a Temporary Vacuum Laboratory the Outgassing Rig and Laminar Flow Bench will meet the immediate needs of ITER. For more news on ITER Vacuum Group see the article ‘Keeping ITER’s microscopic enemies at bay’. The science going on

Pulsed Plasma Deposition (PPD)

PPD is a revolutionary new physical vapour deposition (PVD) technique proved to deposit thin films of numerous materials such as oxides, complex oxides, nitrides, carbides, carbon based films, semiconductors, etc. The deposition of thin films using PPD is done by ablation of a target material using a fast pulse of electrons (100ns) and the material is deposited on the substrate. Ablation by the fast electron beam causes the formation of a hot, dense, and high-velocity plasma. The benefit of the PPD system is its wide dynamic range of deposition rates (0.01 nm/s to 5 nm/s) and wide range of
