UHV Systems



Case Studies

Take a look at different UHV Systems from Vinci Technologies

IJL, France – Daum Lab by Vinci

The technical platform consists in 28 ultra-high vacuum systems, interconnected by the 70-meter long Vinci Technologies ultra-high vacuum transfer tunnel (Mecatrans), including a 30-meter section dedicated to technology transfer. It combines multi-material growth techniques with multi-dimensional analysis techniques for thin films.

The research topics currently developed on the platform cover the following areas:

  • Materials for spintronic: ferromagnetic, magnetic oxides, strong spin orbit coupling, topological effect, etc.
  • Nanomaterials for optoelectronics, photovoltaics, etc.
  • 2D materials: molecular, ultra-thin oxides, etc.
  • Complex alloys and quasi crystals
  • Functional materials: ternary oxides, Heusler alloys, etc.

At each stage of their growth, these hybrid materials can be studied and characterized, while staying under ultra-high vacuum, by using different surface analysis techniques:

Equipment for surface analysis

  • Chemical: Spectroscopies (XPS, Auger, ARPES)
  • Physical: Magneto-optical Kerr effect; Spectroscopies; Photo- and Cathode-luminescence
  • Structural: Electron diffraction (RHEED, LEED); Microscopies (STM, AFM, SEM)
