We describe a UHV sample holder that allows fast heating and cooling cycles between 77 K and 1300 K. The system allows us to perform thermal treatment of a sample. The samples are heated by electron bombardment and the cooldown is achieved by liquid nitrogen (LN2). The sample holder is designed to be assembled in a multitechnique surface analysis apparatus that performs AES, SIMS, TDS and XPS analysis.
