Each Angstrom Sciences magnetron is machined from solid 304 Stainless Steel, Aircraft Grade 6061 Aluminum and OFHC Copper, ensuring magnetic and electrical integrity for long-term, reliable operation. Their low-impedance design provide RF, DC, Mid Frequency DC, Pulse DC, and Microwave power compatibility.
Angstrom Sciences uses ISO NW standard fittings as well as Conflat® metal seal flanges. All utilities are maintained at atmosphere and are accessed through standard o-ring compression fittings for ease of installation in any vacuum system.
The high performance anode shield permits operation at lower voltage and pressure, because the distance between the cathode and anode (ground plane) is shorter. The anode shield also prevents debris from falling in the space between the anode and the cathode, preventing electrical short circuits and arcing.
