New COSCON SIS series is available
Your new tool for ultimate precision and usability: The COSCON SIS series for scanning ion source IQE 12/38
The COSCON SIS series is the latest development in our component smart control power supply series COSCON. The COSCON SIS and its variants COSCON WSIS and COSCON LSIS were designed to control the focusing and scanning ion source IQE 12/38 and its variants with Wien mass filter and low energy version, respectively.
Like the other COSCON devices, the COSCON SIS, WSIS and LSIS are digital and fully computer-controlled power supplies allowing for even higher performance and source automatization. Like other COSCON devices it is fully integrated into SpecsLab Prodigy or can be controlled via web widget from any mobile device and brings your SPECS system one step closer to full automatization.
For the operation of the IQE 12/38 with Wien mass filter, instead of two power supplies, only one COSCON WSIS is necessary, facilitating ion scattering spectroscopy measurements (LEIS/ISS) with highest ion beam purity and ultimate precision. The application with low energy ions for dual beam charge compensation is enabled by the IQE 12 LE and its COSCON LSIS power supply, which furthermore allow to use all features of the COSCON SIS and the IQE 12/38.
All variants of the COSCON SIS can read out the sample current enabling navigation on the sample, selecting sputtering areas and adjusting measurement positions for LEIS/ISS. Fast scanning speeds and small scanning increments result in a very precise operation of the ion beam for highly reproducible spectroscopy and very homogeneous etching craters. Auxiliary input ports on the scanning module allow for application of external scan generators for customized scanning patterns.
