CORONA, J.E; MALDONADO, R.D  and  OLIVA, A.I. Vacuum oven to control the annealing process in alloyed nanolayers. Rev. mex. fis. [online]. 2007, vol.53, n.4, pp.318-322. ISSN 0035-001X.

The design and construction of a vacuum quartz cylindrical oven to diffuse two or more metallic thin films for alloying is discussed. The oven has a gas-inert ambient (Ar) anda heater plate whose temperature is controlled by means of a home-made software development in Lab View 7.0. The heater area of 10 × 5 cm2 raises the temperature to 600°C over time due to the water-cooled extremes implemented. The oven is heated and controlled with a DC power supply, and a K-type thermocouple is used for monitoring the temperature with a ± 0.1°C resolution. Experiments done with the oven to obtain nanostructured AuCu alloys are detailed.

Keywords : Vacuum oven; metallic alloys; interdiffusion; controlled temperature.
