Webinar – Gas Sources in a Vacuum System

Date: Thursday, February 13th, 17:00 PM

Register Now!

The base pressure of any vacuum system is dependent on the effective pumping speed as well as the gas load. In this webinar, we will cover the following topics:

  • List gas sources in vacuum systems
  • Explore causes of each type of gas source
  • Look at opportunities to reduce gas load

These sources include leaks (real and virtual), outgassing (vapor pressure of materials and desorption), and permeation. We will discuss their causes, and look at opportunities to reduce system gas load and lower a vacuum system’s base pressure.

This webinar is designed for Engineers and Technicians who operate and maintain vacuum systems.

Doug Baker, Director of Sales and Business Development for Teledyne Hastings will be presenting this webinar.


The series continues with an in-depth explanation of dynamic nanoindentation (also termed the continuous stiffness measurement technique). In the past 30 years, dynamic nanoindentation has grown in importance for the analysis of modified surfaces, thin films and polymer materials.

Learn more on October 9th, 2019 from 6 pm – 7 pm and register for the webinar here.

  • The KLA team of applications experts will answer your questions live.
  • This event will be recorded & distributed to all registrants within 3 days afterwards.

Label free technology for 3D Live Cell imaging and more

We are pleased to present you a new 3D Holotomographic Microscope.

Holotomography (HT) enables researchers to image cell morphology in 3D without the use of labels. In addition, long term Live Cell Imaging (LCI) is possible due to the extremely low amount of light required for HT as there is no phototoxicity to the cell.

HT also facilitates precise measurement of Refractive Index (RI) at nanoscale, allowing estimations of protein and lipid concentration and their changes in real time.

High speed capture of the data set allows for dynamic imaging, with 3D capture rates of 2fps and 2D imaging at over 150fps for membrane fluctuation assessments.

With the new HT2 instrument, fast, quantitative, label free imaging can be combined with 3D fluorescence (FL) to allow correlative imaging with specificity. To minimize phototoxicity from fluorescence imaging, acquisition of HT and FL are decoupled allowing independent strategies

3D holotomography opens up numerous applications in biology and medicine.

  • Cellular dynamics: growth, differentiation, cell-to-cell interaction, invasion, death
  • Quantitative cell biology: number, mass, volume, surface area
  • Quantification of subcellular metabolites: lipid, polymer,…
  • New parameters for diagnostics: blood cells, lymph, cancer, tissue
  • Image-based species identification for fast diagnosis of infectious diseases


New HVG-2020B Series Vacuum Gauge

Accurate vacuum measurement with flexible I/O and optional color display

Teledyne Hastings Instruments, a worldwide leader of vacuum instrumentation and thermal mass flow meters and mass flow controllers, announces the release of the HVG-2020B Series of vacuum gauges. The HVG-2020B vacuum gauge measures pressures from atmosphere to 0.1 mTorr using two sensor technologies – a media-isolated, gas composition independent, piezoresistive sensor and a precision pirani sensor.

The HVG-2020B Series has an optional color touchscreen display which provides several different views, or modes of operation, for the user including a graphical “pressure versus time” mode, process control set point mode, bar graph mode, and a simple pressure and temperature display.

In addition, the HVG-2020B is very flexible and can provide both analog and digital outputs to easily integrate into process control. A wide variety of analog output signals, both linear and log, may be selected for voltage or current output. Digital output can include RS232 and RS485 via a small jack on the top of the instrument. A USB connection is also available on many models which makes connection and operation very easy for the user. Free Windows® data acquisition software for data logging is available for the HVG-2020B.

KLA Nanoindenter Users Meeting in Langen

After the acquisition of Keysight’s Nanoindenter division and the Nanomechanics Inc. company by KLA, the first joint Nanoindenter Users Meeting took place on 2nd/3rd May at the Mercure Hotel Langen and the premises of Schaefer Technologie GmbH.

During the 2-day event, numerous lectures from the field of materials research were held. In addition, there was the opportunity to participate in live demonstrations of various instruments.

At the evening dinner the participants had the opportunity to exchange experiences and to establish new contacts.

Acquisition of NanoIndenter Product Line

The KLA-Tencor Corporation has acquired the Nanolndenter product line from Keysight Technologies. KLA-Tencor develops and manufactures inspection, metrology, and data analysis systems that rely on innovative optics, sensors, and high-performance computing technologies. The Nanolndenter product line is an excellent fit with KLA-Tencor’s product portfolio. This acquisition extends KLA-Tencor’s surface metrology product suite to include a range of products well matched to the customer’s requirements. Information about the Nano Intender G200 can be found here.

Schaefer-Tec Group has taken over the distribution of the ULVAC Ellipsometer Series

With immediate effect, the Schaefer-Tec Group has taken over the distribution of the ULVAC spectroscopic ellipsometer series. The UNECS model range includes both, portable and manual as well as automated ellipsometer systems. Schaefer Technologie GmbH presents the new compact UNECS-Portable Elliposmeter for the first time at the Control Show 2017 in Stuttgart.

The ULVAC Group manufactures and markets equipment and materials for applications of vacuum techniques and technology in the field of semiconductor, flat panel displays/OLED and disc/magnetic media processing technologies.


Sensofar Users Meeting in Langen


On 24./25. April 2017, the Sensofar Users Meeting organized by Schaefer Technologie GmbH took place at the Steigenberger Airport Hotel in Langen near Frankfurt am Main.

Approximately 30 participants had the opportunity to learn about the latest developments and to exchange ideas with other users during the two-day event. The lecture program covered a wide range of topics, from calibration techniques to typical application examples.

Own samples could be brought along and measured at the exhibited devices.

During the cozy evening buffet, contacts were made and experiences exchanged.
