TPD Workstation: System for UHV Temperature Programmed Desorption (TPD/TDS) Studies from Hiden Analytical

The TPD workstation is provided with a multiport UHV chamber with a heated sample stage combined with a high precision triple filter analyser with digital pulse ion counting detector to offer users high level sensitivity and time resolution.

The Hiden TPD workstation is a fully-fledged experimental system for UHV temperature programmed desorption (TPD) analysis. Swift sample change is enabled by a sample load lock with sample transfer mechanism.

A triple filter mass analyser is designed with a cooled shroud which provides the analyser with exceptional sensitivity with the least background contributions to desorption products from the sample.

Key Features

The key features of the TPD workstation are as follows:

  • Multiport UHV chamber for attachment of supplementary instrumentation such as ellipsometry
  • Hiden 3F PIC mass spectrometer for rapid data acquisition - >500 data points per second
  • Linear sample transfer mechanism and loadlock with gate valve and viewport
  • Heated sample stage to 1000°C
  • Bakeout jacket (200°C max)
  • Z-drive for optimum sample/detector positioning
  • Integrated software control of experimental protocols


The main applications of the TPD workstation are given below:

  • Nanotechnology
  • Surface science
  • Surface analysis
  • Thermal analysis MS
