Vacuum Techniques and Thin Film Deposition
Experiment 3 (October 2001)



Much of modern experimental physics is done under vacuum. Design and construction of vacuum apparatus is one of the most useful ”bread and butter” skills an experimentalist in condensed matter, atomic, or optical physics can have, and the subject of vacuum engineering is a vast one. This lab serves as an introduction to basic vacuum techniques and thin film growth, another often essential skill for condensed matter physicists. This lab is an optional prerequisite for Experiment 10, Condensed Matter Physics at Cryogenic Temperatures, for which you can grow your own samples for Weak Localization measurements if you choose.


Pressure and gas flow

In vacuum work, pressures are almost always measured in millimeters of mercury, or torr. One torr is just the pressure necessary to support a column of mercury with a height of one millimeter. The conversion to units more familiar to readers of physics textbooks is 1atmosphere = 101kPa = 760torr There are two pressure regimes of interest to the scientist working with vacuum systems, and gases behave differently in each regime. The first, the viscous flow regime, describes the case where gas flows as a fluid, where the mean free path of the gas molecules is much smaller than the dimensions of the apparatus. The second, the molecular flow regime, describes the high-vacuum case, where the mean free path is much longer than the characteristic dimensions of the apparatus. In this regime, gas molecules interact almost entirely with the walls of the chamber, acting independent of each other. Gas flow in either regime is measured in torr liters per second, which is equivalent to mass per second. The conductance of a tube describes how much gas flows through the tube for a given pressure…...

Behavioral Techniques

...The normal functioning of a human is largely dependent on the behaviours which relates to the central nervous system; hence behavioral techniques have been used in both animal and human model to further understand the central nervous system. These tests have been widely used to look at the pharmalogical efficacy and the mechanism of depression, anxiety, addiction, memory other mental complications. These techniques are relatively more cost efficient, simple, and easy to conduct, therefore it is widely used. The aim of this paper is to review the advantages, and disadvantages of such techniques and what have been discovered using such techniques. DEPRESSION Depression is a growing concern around the world, and anti-depressants available are not always effect for each individual. In addition, the therapeutic effect of all anti-depressant can be only seen only after a few weeks after administration, therefore having a much delayed therapeutic effect (Lopex-Rodriguez et al., 2004). Hence the forced swim test (FST) is used in numerous studies in expectation to help improve the efficacy and development of antidepressants. The FST, also known as the “behavioural despair test”, due to its ease of use, and inter-lab reliability and specificity, it is very common technique to assess depression and assess efficacy of antidepressant in animal models, typically in rodents. In a FST, a rodent is placed in a pool filled with water which rodents cannot escape from. Data observed are......

Estimating Techniques

...A. Poorly Defined Milestone’s: Milestones allow project management to much more accurately determine whether the project is going as per schedule or not. So, if the milestones are not well defined it will be hard for a project manager to know if the project is going as planned or no. This problem can be overcome while keeping the following things while defining a milestone * The goals & timeline for completion. * The criteria for success. * Brief rationale. * Milestones are not a task to be completed; they are goals to be achieved. B. Poor Estimating techniques: A common reason for cost overruns is the inaccuracy of cost estimates. When the bids for subcontracts or the actual costs come in, they are often higher than anticipated. Such cost overruns are due either to incorrect estimates or to changed conditions in the marketplace. This problem can be overcome by reviewing cost estimates before placing orders to identify mistakes or changed conditions. An overall review may find that increases in some areas are compensated by decreases in others. You may be able to adjust requirements to reduce costs or seek out lower-cost suppliers. Advising the business owners or managers of possible higher costs at this stage gives them the option of making changes and maintaining their budgets. C. A missing PERT/CPM Chart: A PERT & CPM chart’s are project management tools used to schedule, organize, and coordinate tasks within a project. Missing...

Cored Wires with Different Depositions, Compositions and Applications

... Iran E-Mail: Office: 0098 21 44071350 Mobile: 0098 912 2096826 1 Cored Wires with different Depositions, Compositions and Applications Abstract: Cored Wires (CW) are used in a wide range of applications such as joining and hard facing. These kinds of filler metals are generally categorised in “Flux C.W”, “Self Shielded Flux C.W” and “Metal C.W”. Researches on C.Ws used for hardfacing on plane carbon steels, showed that hypo eutectic and eutectic compositions can increase the abrasion resistance. On the other hand addition of “Mn” shows some reductions in abrasion resistance and increasing in impact energy. Special coated electrodes with metal C.Ws had developed for welding of Ductile Cast Iron. This C.W can deposit weld metal same as base metal and also reduce costs in compare with E-Ni. C.Ws produced with “Ti” strip as tube and “Carbon” or “TiC” as inside powder used for hardfacing of Ti can increase the hardness, wear resistance and reduce friction coefficient. Keywords: cored wire, hardfacing, joining, wear resistance, friction coefficient Introduction: Lots of mechanical and industrial equipment such as rolling rollers, continuous casting rolls which are servicing in aggressive working environment for long times which can easily cause damage and greatly shorten their service lives1,2. One of the most economical techniques for repairing such equipment is welding. Various processes such as Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), Gas Tungsten Arc Welding......

...Natalie Reynolds English 1102 section 97 Mandi Sena January 22, 2014 Techniques Gothic Literature, sometimes referred to as Gothic horror, is a genre of literature that combines elements of both horror and romance. The Gothic literature feel is achieved through manipulating literature elements to portray the story or poem how the writer/speaker wants. There are ten main elements that can be manipulated; the setting, the environment, atmosphere, protagonists, emotions, damsels in distress, foreboding, the supernatural, decay of characters, and finally, drama. When writing gothic literature one must use their personal techniques in manipulating the elements to achieve the gothic qualities desired; William Faulkner, Edgar Allan Poe, and Sylvia Plath all use different techniques in their writing and this is what gives each of their pieces of literature a different feel. For example in William Faulkner’s A Rose for Emily he uses techniques unique to himself. Such as, writing the story in an alternating kind of way to help the readers to carry the action forward in their own minds by suggesting doubt in the story line, this allows us to be surprised at the end when we find out what really happens. This back and forth style of writing is prominent throughout the whole story, but the biggest example is that Emily starts out dead and then the writer proceeds to continue the rest of the story from back when she was alive. His story also has a creepy setting where anything......

Atomic Layer Deposition

...Minireviews Electronic Materials M. Leskelä and M. Ritala Atomic Layer Deposition Chemistry: Recent Developments and Future Challenges** Markku Leskelä* and Mikko Ritala Keywords: atomic layer deposition · microelectronics · nitrides · oxides · thin films ew materials, namely high-k (high-permittivity) dielectrics to replace SiO2, Cu to replace Al, and barrier materials for Cu, are revolutionizing modern integrated circuits. These materials must be deposited as very thin films on structured surfaces. The self-limiting growth mechanism characteristic to atomic layer deposition (ALD) facilitates the control of film thickness at the atomic level and allows deposition on large and complex surfaces. These features make ALD a very promising technique for future integrated circuits. Recent ALD research has mainly focused on materials required in microelectronics. Chemistry, in particular the selection of suitable precursor combinations, is the key issue in ALD; many interesting results have been obtained by smart chemistry. ALD is also likely to find applications in other areas, such as magnetic recording heads, optics, demanding protective coatings, and micro-electromechanical systems, provided that cost-effective processes can be found for the materials required. N 1. Introduction Atomic layer deposition (ALD) has recently received much interest as a potential deposition method for advanced thin-film structures. However, ALD had already been developed and......

Managment Techniques

... | | [Document subtitle] | There are many different management techniques to choose from so how is a manager supposed to know which technique will be the best style to effectively operate their business. Managers need to know which technique to apply when dealing with their employees and which technique will work well for their company to achieve the heist level of productivity and profitability. An effective manager will have to have some experience in there are of business and also some experience with the different types of management techniques. Management techniques are effective methods of managing that help to develop a productive workplace (Kokemuller). Common styles of management techniques include: coaching, participative, laissez-faire, lead by example, and authoritative. (Kokemuller). There is no one “best” managerial leadership style that will be effective when dealing with employees or when managing a business. According to business experts, the most effective techniques are those that are a mix of all the styles. Manager need to expand their leadership skills to improve their employee’s morale, they must use a combination of leadership behaviors to maximize their effect on employees. A manager’s leadership style influences, motivation, moral, and retention in staff. Leaders are influenced by their educational development and the organizational culture (Deeb). Management techniques are those management concept or strategies which are followed to run......

Recruitment Techniques

...ASSIGNMENT TITLE…….ANALYSE USING EXAMPLES, THE SIX COMMON RECRUITMENT TECHNIQUES INTRODUCTION Recruitment is a fundamental human resource function that overarches many different aspects of the organisation’s overall performance. There are many different ways to recruit new talent to a company, all of which have pros and cons. Therefore recruiters employ a number of different techniques to search and obtain the best possible candidates from the multitude of interested employees. In this paper, the writer seeks to analyse common recruitment techniques which include advertising, head hunting, labour agencies, referrals, existing employees and e-recruitment. The key terms to be defined are recruitment and recruitment techniques. DEFINITION OF KEY TERMS Recruitment According to Beach (1987) recruitment is the development and maintenance of adequate manpower sources. It involves the creation of a pool of available labour from which the organisation can draw when additional employees are needed. Tyson and Fell (1996:28) define recruitment as, “the process of finding and hiring the best qualified candidate (from within or outside of an organisation) for a job opening, in a timely and cost effective manner.” Therefore, from the two definitions above, it can be said that the recruitment process involves analyzing the requirements of a job, attracting employees to that job at lower cost, ensuring that there are equal opportunity for employment for all potential applicants. The......

...------------------------------------------------- Techniques and terms[edit] All social engineering techniques are based on specific attributes of human decision-making known as cognitive biases.[3] These biases, sometimes called "bugs in the human hardware," are exploited in various combinations to create attack techniques, some of which are listed here: Pretexting[edit] Pretexting (adj. pretextual), also known in the UK as blagging or bohoing, is the act of creating and using an invented scenario (the pretext) to engage a targeted victim in a manner that increases the chance the victim will divulge information or perform actions that would be unlikely in ordinary circumstances.[4] An elaborate lie, it most often involves some prior research or setup and the use of this information for impersonation (e.g., date of birth, Social Security number, last bill amount) to establish legitimacy in the mind of the target.[5] This technique can be used to fool a business into disclosing customer information as well as by private investigators to obtain telephone records, utility records, banking records and other information directly from company service representatives. The information can then be used to establish even greater legitimacy under tougher questioning with a manager, e.g., to make account changes, get specific balances, etc. Pretexting can also be used to impersonate co-workers, police, bank, tax authorities, clergy, insurance investigators — or any other individual...

A Deposition

...Jorie (& Jamie): A Deposition The story is told from Jamie's point of view. Jamie is a thirteen year old girl and have little brother and a twin sister. The little brothers name is Calvin and her sisters name is Jorie. We do not know the name of her parents, but we do know that the father left the family and that in the end the mother went to prison. The narrator is limited, because we only hear the story from Jamie's perspective. (l. 7) "I want to see my mom now" is an example on how the narrator is limited. Jamie believes that if she tells the person we do not know (maybe the school nurse) about her mom, she would come and visit her mom. But Jamie does not know the better life with her family will not happen since something happened to Jorie and the mom ended up in prison for it. The narrator is limited because it has the effect that you see how the whole situation effects the girl. The anxiety, unawareness and fear she goes through is more clear to us if we as a reader is not certain about what happened. Because we do not know more than she does, it is as if we are experiencing the story with her, and we are exposed to what unfolds along side with her. It is a way for the reader to be able to identify with Jamie in an easier way. Jamie is not a typical girl because she experience things at home that is not normal for the typical girl. (ll. 11-12) "I hate how everybody treats me like a young kid when I am thirteen years old" She does behave like a typical teenager......

A fantasy is defined as the forming of mental images especially wondrous or strange fancies imaginative conceptualizing ( Individuals can fantasize anytime, whether they are by themselves enhancing masturbation, or with their partners engaging sexual activities. It is not uncommon for some partners to even role play and reenact each other’s fantasies for sexual arousal, excitement, and even pleasure. Another sexual technique that was discussed in this chapter was masturbation. Masturbation is defined as the stimulation or manipulation of one’s own genitals especially to orgasm sexual self-gratification ( This sexual technique can be done with the aid of a sex toy, or an individual’s own hand. Masturbation is completely normal and healthy for individuals to do. This sexual technique is used for sexual gratification, relieving stress, or even relaxation. Most couples engage in foreplay before encountering sexual intercourse. Foreplay allows individual to prepare themselves, their minds, and especially their bodies for the act of intercourse. Kissing and touching are two excellent ways to begin foreplay. Touching is not just foreplay, but also a sexual technique, an individual can arousal their partner by touch alone. Partners can touch each other’s genitals, caress......

Aseptic Technique

...This essay it will explain the Aseptic Technique and how it is used to prevent the spread of infection in wounds. It will also give a personal experience of performing the technique. Hart (2004) states the principle of Aseptic Technique is to prevent the spread of micro organisms to wounds and to protects the nurse and patient from healthcare-associated infections (HCIA). The technique used for less invasive procedures such as intravenous drugs and wound care is the Aseptic No-touch Technique (ANTT) (Pratt et al 2007). The key aspects of this skill are consent, preparation and prevention. The nurse must obtain consent from the patient and explain the procedure. The patient must be made comfortable and placed in a suitable position as the technique may take some time to conduct, the nurse must be able to have access to the wound to prevent any additional contamination. ANTT should be carried out in a quite calm environment, cleaning should be done at least half an hour before and adjacent windows should be shut as this allows for airborne contamination to settle (Dietze et al 2001). Preparation is vital for the ANTT, equipment used should be sterile, in date, undamaged and that correct storage has been used (Department of Health DoH 2003). Guidelines on hand washing have been devised by DoH (2005) as it recognises that most HCIAs are spread through inappropriate hand washing. Hands should be washed immediately before and after the ANTT to prevent the spread of......
