   #1:  Rudi's private lab 1997 - 2011

 After leaving Seibersdorf (ARCS) in 1997, Rudi rented 56.3 m 2 lab space in the
 basement of Vienna University of Technology where he operated a number of
 vacuum and gas-analysis systems, essentially based on the equipment he had used
 during his time at ARCS - supported by his family menders, by former coworkers,
 and by a number of students.

Small vacuum system for exposure of samples in HTO (tritiated water) atmosphere.

UHV chamber for calibration down to 10-10 mbar by static and dynamic expansion (that time used for HTO expansion out of small hv-valves)
