The “Transfer Module“ is a special device for use with an SEM. It is made for the purpose of carrying delicate and sensible specimens in a capsule from the SEM into a glove box, so that these specimens will be protected from air or moisture at all times. This device will mount on the specimen stage just like a microscope sample. It takes a few moments to install it in the SEM, or in the glove box. The shipment volume contains the module, two vacuum tight flanges, cable bundles, and controller for the opening/closing process. The stage door of the SEM must be opened to mount it on the specimen holder seat, just like exchanging an ordinary SEM specimen. A cable bundle leads from the module to the vacuum flange at the door surface or at the side wall of the specimen chamber. The whole assembly will not exceed 40 mm height. A small platform is mounted inside a “capsule”-like structure, equipped with a “lid”. This lid can be opened and closed by a small DC motor at air or in vacuum. Specimens for this module may be as tall as 6 mm, and we recommend to provide small “Cambridge” specimen stubs. Eight of them will fit inside the module. Alternatively, two larger disk (25mm dia) may be used to mount the specimens there.
