What will you be doing

NTS has designed and built an advanced Residual Gas Analysis (RGA) setup, able to detect very low levels of residual materials and outgassing components. We have built this setup to advance with respect to the increasing cleanliness levels demands from our customers, and we will employ the setup to validate and improve the cleanliness of the manufacturing and assembly processes within NTS.

In order to make the RGA tool further operational there are several steps to be taken. Hence, the student project has the following objectives:

  • Determine the RGA fingerprint of several contaminants
  • Optimize the measurement protocol
  • Document the measurement protocol in an accessible way
  • Program the protocol into the LabView software of the RGA setup


Because the RGA facilities are in Eindhoven, the execution location of this project is our D&E location in Eindhoven. Coaching and supervision is provided from this site.

Start of the project

The project will start in September-October 2020

  • The project deliverables can be tailored towards the requirements of your institute/university.
  • Programming experience in LabView would be helpful.
