Magnetron sputtering

In magnetron sputtering, magnetic fields focus plasmas onto target material surfaces, ejecting material that moves through the plasma to coat substrates. Suitable for depositing most materials (with correct choice of sputtering power supply).

Magnetron sputtering is a core speciality of Moorfield, with most of our systems offering this technique.
