It is equally suitable for research and mass-production work, and can be used for the monitoring and control of both metallic and dielectric film deposition. The FTM3, which gives digital read-out in Hz, has a sensitivity of about 300 Hz pg-r-equivalent to 1 A film thickness per Hz, at unit density. Drift is under 10 Hz in 8 h. The read-out display up-dates once a second, and there are outputs for deposition rate display and automatic termination units (which are also available). The unit utilizes the crystal microbalance technique. Inputs for two crystals are provided, so that users have a choice of monitoring

For simplicity in use all controls are push-button type and include mains on/off with indicator lamps, a crystal check facility which displays frequency difference between the monitor and reference oscillators, and quick-operating zero set. Edwards High Vacuum Circle number

This firm also announces that Mr Richard Trillwood has taken over as managing director of their subsidiary company Vacuum Thermal Processes Ltd. Also, after highly satisfactory co-operation for 2 years, a specialist company has been formed near Cologne to advance their processes of electron beam welding and vacuum brazing. Indeed, they now have in total more than 25 agents who have helped raise order intake above the f500,OOO pa mark. Wentgate Engineers Ltd Circle

A breath of air for the RAF In the picture opposite, the pilot of the Harrier Jet fighter at RAF Wittering, Northants, is provided with his breathing oxygen from an insulated spherical vessel containing five litres of Air Products’ liquid oxygen. The container, carried by the technician on the left, is housed in an equipment bay just behind the main undercarriage of the Hawker Siddeley Jet V/STOL fighter. Its liquid oxygen contents are converted into gas at a nominal pressure of 70 lb in.-z and supplied to the pilot via a shut-off valve in the cabin. It can be easily ‘topped up’ from a portable LOX trolley or can be rapidly replaced with another container.
