Vacuum Ovens (×3)


Three vacuum ovens, used for PDMS processing and general use. The top two ovens are dedicated to PDMS processing only: the top oven is for degassing; the middle oven is for curing. The bottom oven is for general-use annealing.


  • Annealing under vacuum or in nitrogen ambient
  • Maximum vacuum of ~22" Hg (~560 Torr)
  • Maximum temperature: 250 °C (top and middle), 300 °C (bottom)
  • Manual control: not programmable for temperature ramping
