The authors have developed a specimen holder for in situ vacuum deposition of thin films in the pressure region of 10-8 torr. Substrate temperatures can be measured to ±4°C over a range of -150°C to +400°C. The residual pressure can be measured during operation by a cold-cathode ionization vacuum gauge in the vicinity of the specimen. UHV is achieved by surrounding the specimen with a cooled cartridge pumped by the gauge working as a getter ion pump.
