Reaction chamber with diagnostics windows

The induction plasma system can be equipped with a reaction chamber with observation windows designed for diagnostics (iCCD, HS imaging, Optical Emission Spectroscopy, Laser Spectroscopy).

Specific Surface Area analysis

Specific Surface Area analysis is performed using BET technique (Quantachrome Novae 2200e).
