Kimball Physics Inc.
Electron Guns , Cathodes (thermionic emitters) , Vacuum Chambers (compact, multiport) and Fittings are Kimball Physics core products.
Electron Guns: Energy ranges from 1 eV to 100 keV. Fast pulsing, Beam blanking, Deflection, Rastering, Gun-mounted Faraday cups. Kimball Physics' electron gun systems are complete and fully operational as delivered (plug and play). Applications: surface & space physics, accelerators, x-ray production etc.
Cathodes: High performance LaB6 (lanthanum hexaboride), Yttria coated Iridium, Tantalum, Barium oxide and Tungsten filaments. Kimball Physics' rugged cathodes are produced out of refractory metals, oxides and single crystals such as lanthanum hexaboride (LaB6). Applications: microscopy, lithography, x-ray sources, free electron lasers, etc.
Vacuum Chambers and Fittings: Compact, multi-port UHV vacuum chambers with internal and external mounting systems, reducing experimental set-up times. These Conflat vacuum fittings and components minimize welds, reduce space, improve vacuum performance and save time. Applications: high and ultra-high vacuum systems.
