A LINUX computer cluster of 168 quad-core CPUs (672 cores), with 2016 GB RAM (memory) and 100 TB main storage; theoretically, the computational power is about 4 tera flops.








Electron-beam evaporation physical vapor deposition chamber, with temperature control down to 77 K, base pressure of 1 x 10-7 mbar, working pressure of 1 x 10-4 mbar. There are four source material holders in the chamber as well as multiple substrate targets, so it is feasible to switch from one source material or substrate to another without affecting the vacuum. The system has capabilities of depositing several atomic layers to several microns of source material, through 6 kW of power available to bombard the source with electrons.




High temperature thermal evaporation chamber, with temperature up to 1600 ºC, base pressure of 1 x 10-5 mbar, and working pressure of 100 mbar.
