Sketch of the heating stage: (a) isometric front view depicting the basic outer parts; (b) cross section of the stage interior: (1) rear outer copper heating shield (actively water cooled); (2) internal tantalum heating shield (not cooled); (3) SiC sample holder—absorber platelet; (4) specimen mount—tungsten clamp; (5) heating stage copper base (actively water cooled); (6) optical fiber guidance; (7) goniometer stage adapter. Overall dimensions are approximately .
Basic principle of the laser heating stage: SiC sample holder is heated up by absorbing the infrared laser light of wavelength .
Sketch of the SiC sample holder placed on a steel scaffolding. The diameter of the steel stilts is minimized with respect to mechanical stability in order to reduce thermal dissipation.
Sketch of the setup for hot stage in situ EBSD measurements and OC imaging. The heating unit controls the temperature of the SiC sample holder and adjusts the power output of the infrared laser to keep the desired constant temperature; the EBSD system performs automated EBSD-data acquisition or video camera (charge coupled device) records OC images.
