Innovative Solutions for Challenging Vacuum Problems

When Argonne and Brookhaven National Laboratory scientist, Ray Conley, needed an unusual room-length vacuum deposition system for the growth of multilayer Laue lenses, he contracted with CVD Equipment Corporation to design and build the system. The process requires a transport car to move back and forth with high precision through a series of vacuum chambers, while atomic lens layers are deposited one at-a-time.

According to John Feraca of CVD, one of the challenges was maintaining the precise alignment of the linear transport mechanism through the length of five separate vacuum chambers, making the parallelism of the chamber end flanges critical. Nor-Cal Products participated in a design review held at our facility and made recommendations to simplify manufacturing, while maintaining all critical-to-quality specifications.
