Dr. Mahesh Anand is using Linkam’s TS1400XY stage to study moon rocks sourced from lunar volcanoes at The Open University in England. Dr. Anand and Dr. Alice Stephant are planning to analyze water and hydrogen isotope composition of water trapped in tiny inclusions of melt (called melt inclusions, or MI) in the moon rocks. Read the full article.

The TS1400XY stage has been designed specifically for geologists and metallurgists. It offers a high-speed quench cooling feature to enable the user to quickly transfer the sample to a cold quenching post. Cooling rates of up to 240°C per second can be achieved. The ceramic heater surrounds the sample keeping the heat localised to the sample.

The stage is controlled by Linkam’s temperature controller and delivers a temperature range from ambient to 1400°C within a gas tight body and can heat samples at a rate of up to 200°C/min. The sample is mounted onto a sapphire sample slide and can be manipulated within the ceramic heater by 6mm in the X and Y axis.
