FemtoLEED DLD L1000

Ultra-Sensitive and Insulating Film Crystallography


  • Fully digital
  • Minimised blind area
  • Electron diffraction on insulating single crystal samples
  • Large coherence width
  • Powerful operation with digital LEED controller

The LEED DLD L1000 with integral shutter enables measurements of ultra-sensitive and insulating films. Instead of a fluorescent screen, it uses a delay line detector which allows for fully digital operation. The hex-anode provides minimised blind area due to the redundant detection opportunities of the added third delay line layer.

More Information


The LEED DLD L1000 is specifically useful for investigations on ultra-sensitive and insulating films. The fully digital system negates the need for an external CCD camera for live image capture. 


Configuration and Specification Guide

The LEED DLD L1000 optics is controlled using a LPS075-D power supply with a MCPS02 controller used to operate the microchannel plates. In addition to the LPS075-D and MCPS02 controllers the DLA-TR8 controller from Roentdek is needed for operation of the hexDLD-anode. Integral shutter (model ISH) and LaB6 filament (model LaB6) are further options.
