The design and performance of a thin bakable in-line valve are described. The valve is designed for use in electron scattering experiments for efficient and minimal spatial separation of ultrahigh vacuum from a region containing metal vapors, base pressure of 8x10(-8) Torr, or atmosphere. The simple compact design permits experiments with metal vapors and spin polarized electrons to be conducted with high efficiency and over months, without loss of emission from GaAs crystal or need for frequent bakeout of ultrahigh vacuum chamber.
