The RFICP 40 is the smallest and most cost effective RF gridded ion source product. It is well suited for installations in smaller vacuum platforms. At an attractive cost, the RFICP 40 product brings the latest gridded technology innovations to research and develop applications. The research scientist can have access to filament-less technology which makes the RFICP 40 a productive tool when the use of reactive gases are a dominant variable in the process strategy. Under the standard configuration, the typical ion energy range is from 100 to 1200eV, while the ion current can exceed 120mA.

Self-Aligning Grids (OptiBeam™)

The KDC product line incorporates KRI’s patented self-aligned ion optics technology. The OptiBeam™ grids do not require an alignment procedure. Through advanced engineering and precision construction, the straightforward assembly procedure assures the grids are aligned. The benefits of the self-aligning grids includes beam repeatability, extended grid lifetime, maximized ion current, reduced maintenance time and improved uptime.
