In stock
Item Number: VTC-600-2HD-LD
Transported by LTL Freight (Truck)

Personalization

VTC-600-2HD-LD is a compact magnetron sputtering system with dual 2" target sources, e.g., one DC source for coating metallic film, and the other RF source for coating non-metallic material. This coating system is designed for coating both single or multiple film layers for a wide range of materials, such as alloy, ferroelectric, semiconductor, ceramic, dielectric, optical, PTFE, etc. (Revised since 9/25/2015.  Film Thickness Monitor is not included.)

     Application Notes

       
            Pic 1                  Pic 2              

    • A two-stage pressure regulator (not included) should be installed on gas cylinder to limit the gas output pressure below 0.02 MPa for safe usage
    • In order to remove oxygen from the chamber, MTI suggest you to use 5% Hydrogen + 95 % Nitrogen to clean the chamber 2-3 times, which can reduce oxygen level to < 10 ppm
    • Please use > 5N purity Argon gas for plasma sputtering. Even though 5N purity Ar usually contains 10 - 100 ppm oxygen and H2O depending on the supplier. MTI suggest you to use gas purification device to purify gas before filling in. (Click Pic #1 & #2 on the left to order)
    • For best performance, the non-conductive targets must be installed with a copper backing plate. Please refer to the instruction video below for target bonding (Click Pic #3 below)
    • MTI supplies single crystal substrate from A to Z (Click Pic #4 below to order) 
    • MTI Sputtering Coaters have successfully coated ZnO on Al2O3 substrate at 500 °C (XRD profile in Pic #5 below)
    • Test the flexibility of the thin film / coated electrode with EQ-MBT-12-LD mandrel bending tester. (Pic #6)
    • HIGH VOLTAGE! Sputtering heads connect to high voltage. For safety, the operator must shut down the RF / DC generator before sample loading and target changing operations
    • DO NOT use tap water in water chiller. Use coolant, DI water, distilled water, or anti-corrosive additives with water
