Developing Rectangular Vacuum Viewports for Condensed Matter Observation

The Insulator Seal division of MDC Vacuum Products has recently joined up with a multidisciplinary research organization to specifically design pressure vessels which will be employed to analyze condensed matter response to extreme conditions.

The aim of these studies is to understand the physical and chemical changes to liquids and solids while undergoing extreme compression – for example, shock physics. Axial progression of shock waves is monitored through the complex design of rectangular, high pressure viewports.

Application

  • Rectangular detector required full view with limited space
  • Pressure (> 10 atmospheres, explosive loading)
  • Linear scanning along axis of window providing wide field of view
