The gold charge is extremely depleted. I put in new pellets, but you
must be careful in adding them. If you add pellets up to the top of
the crucible you will have problems. You should only add one layer
at a time and then melt them down. To rebuild the source will take
multiple depositions. Each lab member should only add one layer of
pellets at a time.
If you fill the crucible all the way, you will leave trapped air in
the source which will splatter during deposition.
Be careful rebuilding the source and the next time stop using it
before you run it down so far.
