MC050: Ultraminiature UHV strain cell

The MC050 fits the tiny ‘flag sample carrier’ common to many vacuum transfer systems. The device is purely mechanical, force being applied via a differential screw turned using a wobble stick and the force applied being shown via a needle indicator visible through an optical window. The UHV compatibility and size make the device suitable for ARPES, MOKE, STM and other UHV measurements.
