The picture documents the construction phase of a sealed environment that will encapsulate the coating device and part of the scientific instrument in an inert atmosphere in order to prevent the exposure of sensitive inks to oxygen and humidity and also to protect the operators from dangerous chemicals and solvent vapours that may form during the coating operation.
It consists of an alluminum frame and acrylic glass walls with silicone sealed gaps with an internal volume of about 0.6 m³. This volume will be filled with inert gases and the inner atmosphere will have < 1 ppm of oxygen and < 0.1 ppm of water residues.
