The transfer stage

The insertion of samples is done through the transfer stage. The sample is inserted in the load lock chamber (pressure 5e-6 mbar). The usual time for pumping is 15-20 minutes. The sample can then be inserted with a transfer arm in the garage chamber (base pressure 8e-10 mbar), where three sample holders can be placed. The samples from this stage can then be moved or to the preparation or directly to the experimental chambers with a second transfer arm.
