Applicant: UChicago Argonne, LLC. 9700 South Cass Ave., Lemont, IL 60439. Instrument: TFS500 Atomic Layer Deposition System. Manufacturer: Beneq OY, Finland. Intended Use: The instrument will be used in experiments on atomic layer deposition (ALD) growth of thin film materials to determine the optimal conditions of temperature, pressure, flux and precursor combinations. For the research the instrument is required to have a modular deposition chamber so that the system can be reconfigured to optimize the coating process for different substrates. It also requires a precursor delivery system that can be heated to 500 degrees Celsius to vaporize non-volatile chemical precursors. It also requires inert gas purging between the deposition chamber and outer heating chambers to contain the precursors without the need for a gas-tight seal at this junction. Justification for Duty-Free Entry: There are no instruments of the same general category being manufactured in the United States. Application accepted by Commissioner of Customs: February 2, 2011. Docket Number: 11–016. Applicant: UChicago Argonne, LLC. 9700 South Cass Ave., Lemont, IL 60439–4873. Instrument: Single Roll Presser. Manufacturer: A–Pro Co., Ltd, South Korea. Intended Use: The instrument will be used for making novel electrodes for lithium-ion cells, which are subjected to electrochemical performance testing to determine the influence of the active materials in the electrodes and electrolyte. The instrument is unique in that it is semiautomated with a high attention to dimensional tolerances, temperature control and safety, helping guarantee that the research cells made will be of industrial level quality and consistency for the experiments.

Instrument: Rapid Thermal Annealer. Manufacturer: Qualiflow Jipelec, France. Intended Use: The instrument will be used to conduct fast temperature ramping experiments with the purpose of annealing the research sample within. The instrument is designed for quick ramping of temperature in order to keep the thermal budget at a minimum. The instrument has a temperature ramp rate of 300 degrees Celsius per second. Other key characteristics that distinguish this instrument from others are vacuum purge capability and contamination control.
