Nikon K2 IND

Above: photo from eBay listing

210 mm optics

Came mostly complete save objectives. Got a Nikon BD Plan 20x objective off of eBay but unfortunately its scratched a little :(. Might not hurt image quality too much though.

Zygo KMS310RT

Above: system at auction. Trivia: the CRT said Micron Technology on it...must have come from them

Intended to be a mask aligner. Infinity system. I believe this is sold by Zygo with major components from Technical Instruments and Nikon.

Very heavy! Estimate 700 lbs

Came as a complete system minus control system:

  • Mercury burner w/ PS
  • Fiber illuminator w/ PS
  • Nikon CF Plan objectives (4). Something like  % * 5x
    • 10x
    • 20x
    • 100x
  • TMC pneumatic anti-vibration table
  • Motorized servo XY table
  • Motorized Z axis (course focus)
  • Piezo Z axis (fine focus)

This page is about piecing it together to try to get it working again

It came with a very small subsection of the user man. I was able to contact Zygo and get some more info

Detailed teardown

TMS300 or something

Removed, but would be nice to get it working at some point

XY servo motor stage

DC servo system with glass linear encoders. Switched out for stepper system for quicker bring up but might eventually put it back on

Motor: voltage/current/inductance? QUALITY MOTION CONTROL PART NO. 2241-M2608 SERIAL NO. 177 DATE CODE 9606 CUST NO. REV. LEVEL

linear encoder RSK Type MSA6703 Nr.034-042815 01003 Spec.939 F08 Int. 10 um RI-Code02U +5V

Disposition Services microscope stand

XY stepper motors and a reasonably heavy duty (not as heavy duty as the Zygo) manual Z axis.

I believe this was from a K2 IND, or at least something very similar. The XY stage (and maybe z too) footprint is compatible with the disposition services unit

At the time I didn't have a use for it but bought it on speculation since it was pretty inexpensive (about $120 total IIRC)
