Moorfield’s nanoPVD range goes from strength to strength


Four recent installations in London, Sweden, and Norway Our nanoPVD systems have recently been installed at Imperial College London, Queen Mary University London, Sweden’s Lund University, and the University of Oslo, Norway. Moorfield have just installed a nanoPVD-S10A benchtop magnetron sputtering tool to Dr Firat Güder’s group ( at Imperial College, London. Here, it will be […]

PVD Techniques

nanoPVD-T15A chamber interior with two TE1 sources for metals evaporation

Moorfield are experienced in all common PVD techniques and can supply systems with fully-integrated component sets. Standalone components also available. Electron-Beam Evaporation Electron-beam (e-beam) evaporation is a type of physical vapour deposition in which a material to be deposited is heated to a temperature at which it evaporates, by bombardment with a beam of electrons.

Magnetron Sputtering

Magnetron sputtering

Magnetron sputtering is a versatile technique suited to a wide range of materials – and provides excellent coating-substrate adhesion. In sputtering, deposition material is ejected from a target surface through bombardment by plasma ions. During the process, the substrate (which is to be coated) is placed inside a vacuum chamber, facing one or more magnetron […]

Thermal Evaporation

Thermal evaporation

Thermal evaporation is the most straightforward physical vapour deposition (PVD) technique, in terms of both mechanism and system configuration. The method is suitable for depositing a range of materials, primarily metals.  How it works To start, substrates are supported at the top of a process chamber above a component on which the evaporant is supported (known […]

Electron-Beam Evaporation

Electron Beam Evaporation Moorfield Nanotechnology

Like all evaporative physical vapour deposition (PVD) methods, electron-beam evaporation (also known as e-beam evaporation) involves heating a material under vacuum conditions (typically in the 10-7 mbar region, or lower). This in-turn releases a vapour that moves up through a process chamber and coats a substrate at the top. Why use E-beam Evaporation? Evaporant heating […]
