Confocal Magnetron Sputtering

Confocal magnetron sputtering

Multi-layer films by confocal magnetron sputtering  Confocal magnetron sputtering is now routinely employed for the production of excellent uniformity, multi-layer films by magnetron sputtering. This application note describes the technology, and explains the principles behind it.  Figure 1 (a) is a schematic of magnetron sputtering equipment in which the magnetron’s central axis is aligned exactly with […]

Source Selection for Thermal Evaporation

Thermal evaporation sources

Source types  Thermal evaporation is suitable for depositing a wide variety of materials. To a large extent, the capability of the technique is subject to the type of source fitted. Sources are typically fabricated from tungsten, tantalum or molybdenum, and come in several different forms, e.g., boats, baskets (including those suitable for supporting crucibles), filaments […]
