UHV chamber


These days, UHV chambers are mostly made of stainless steel. On the central chamber, tubes are mounted with flanges in the end, for instrumentation and pumping. UHV welding is not a trivial process. One has to avoid air enclosures which could give rise to virtual leaks.


Other materials for UHV chambers are mu-metal (a special steel) for the shielding of magnetic fields and aluminium.
