Docket Number: 00-019. Applicant: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, IL 61801. Instrument: E-beam Evaporator and Flux Controller, Model EGN4. Manufacturer: Oxford Applied Research, United Kingdom. Intended Use: See notice at 65 FR 47405, August 2, 2000.
Comments: None received. Decision: Approved. No instrument of equivalent scientific value to the foreign instrument, for such purposes as it is intended to be used, is being manufactured in the United States. Reasons: The foreign instrument provides simultaneous loading of four different types of charges so that multi-layer thin film deposition is possible without breaking vacuum. A university research laboratory advised August 31, 2000 that (1) this capability is pertinent to the applicant's intended purpose and (2) it knows of no domestic instrument or apparatus of equivalent scientific value to the foreign instrument for the applicant's intended use.
We know of no other instrument or apparatus of equivalent scientific value to the foreign instrument which is being manufactured in the United States.Start Signature
