The sample holder is a broad term covering both the sample holders and the sample holder mounts that are availble from VACGEN. Sample holder mounts are attached to the end of rotary drive and provide support for the sample holder. They facilitate both primary and azimuthal rotation and connection for sample services such electrical, heating and cooling. They can be adjusted to suit varying thickness of sample.
The sample mounts are the interface between the sample and the movements of the manipulator
The SH2 provides one axis of rotation about the centre of the manipulator and the second at 90° known as azimuthal rotation
