NIMA LB 2011 Langmuir Trough With Linear Dipper


Location: E136

This instrument is primarily designed and optimised to produce Langmuir-Blodgett films on solid substrates, but could also be used to investigate monolayer compression behvior.

Specifications / Capabilities:

Trough parameters

  • Round trough, area 15 cm2 to 1000 cm2
  • Two barriers under computer control, can be operated independently or in coupled mode
  • Barrier speed 6 to 700 cm2-min-1
  • Nima model PS4 pressure sensor centrally mounted
  • Single dipping well, 100mm x 80mm rectangle, 60mm deep from the floor of the trough.
  • Can be connected to circulating water bath for temperature control (none normally connected)
  • Located in a HEPA low particulate matter flow hood

Dipper parameters

  • Langmuir model D1L dipper with sample mountings for microscope slides or 7.62 cm (3") diameter wafers
  • Linear velocity dipping, 0.8 to 66 mm-min-1 velocities
  • Capable of multiple dipping programs. automatically maintained at constant pressure
