New AJA Ion Mill arriving - Veeco Ion Mill Going Away
CNF purchased a new fully automated, AJA ion mill with a 22cm Kaufman source. We will receive the system at the end of January/beginning of February time frame. Upon arrival we will install the system. This requires the removal of the existing Veeco ion mill. Consequently we will have a downtime of about a month or two without ion milling capabilities.
