Magnets for Ion Pumps
Agilent ion pump magnets provide uniform and high-density magnetic field strengths required for proper ion pump operation. Ion pumping efficiency depends on the electron cloud density, which is directly related to cell geometry, electric field, and magnetic field strength. Common designs for sputter-ion pumps use magnetic fields between 1,200 and 1,400 gauss.
