The LEED 450 with integral shutter has LEED and AES capabilities using a miniature electron gun, set of concentric grids and a conductive, phosphor coated screen. It is an extremely reliable high-performance LEED instrument which operates with up to date digital power supply. The wide viewing angle (90° at 32mm sample distance) and minimal shadowing of the screen by the miniature electron gun give a maximum visible LEED pattern.
The LEED 450 is capable of providing LEED and AES data for a wide range of samples. The miniature size allows for integration into any UHV system.
For seamless integration, 3D step files are available for all models.
External LMX length calculation for LEED 450 (model BDL450):
FS = OL + WD; where FS is the flange to sample distance, OL is the fixed optic length and WD is the working distance.
FS = PL + B + OV where PL is the port length, B is the minimum bellow length and OV is the overlapping value.

The LEED 450 optics is controlled using either a LPS075-D or LPS300-D power supply. The LPS075-D is used to operate the optic in LEED mode only whereas the LPS300-D in conjunction with the LOA10-AES lock-in controller and AUS30 input coupler is used to operate the optics in LEED and AES modes. Integral shutter (model ISH-45) and LaB6 filament (Model LaB6) are further options.
