MiniLab 125

MiniLab 125 tools take the modular concept to the pilot-scale level. Large chambers allow for increased-size component sets for coating large areas, and a range of load-lock options enable high-throughput operation. At the same time, systems are fully cust
MiniLab 125

MiniLab 125 systems are floor-standing vacuum evaporators for metal, dielectric and/or organics thin-film deposition. All systems contain a box-type stainless-steel chamber with a front door for loading/unloading. Large chamber volumes enable large sources for pilot-scale coating or multiple techniques for a flexible R&D tool. Systems are available fitted with all major deposition techniques and stages customised to specific substrates.

Turbomolecular pumping systems are standard, for high-vacuum base pressures of better than 5 × 10-7 mbar. Exact setup is extremely flexible and dependent on customer budget and applications.

    Thermal evaporation (metals):
    Four-source TE4 thermal evaporation component with source shutters and rotation stage. High power TEC-4A power supply and controller with recipe-based automated control. Quartz crystal sensor head with PC software for rate/thickness monitoring.

    Thermal evaporation (metals and organics)
    Two TE1 thermal evaporation sources for metals and four LTE-1CC components for organics. Source shutters and rotation stage. Evaporation power supplies linked to quartz crystal sensor head and Inficon SQC-310 process controller for automated process control per user-defined rates/thicknesses.

    E-beam evaporation
    Multi-pocket (e.g., 6 × 7 cc or 8 × 4 cc) water-cooled e-beam source with 5 kW power supply/controller and automated pocket selection. Source and substrate shutters, and rotation. Quartz crystal sensor heads with Inficon SQC-310 process controller for automated process control per user-defined rates/thicknesses.

    Magnetron sputtering
    Up to four water-cooled magnetron sources for 3″ circular targets. RF and DC power supplies with SputterSwitch technology for shared outputs. Source shutters and substrate rotation. Recipe-based power vs. time process control. Magnetron sputtering sources can be added alongside the above techniques.

    Service requirements

    All MiniLab 125 tools require chilled water, dry compressed air, nitrogen for venting (optional) and electrical power (three-phase for e-beam evaporation). Sputtering systems also require process gases (argon, oxygen and nitrogen). Exact requirements will be provided with quotations or on request.
