MiniLab 090 systems are floor-standing PVD tools for metals, dielectrics and/or organics deposition. All systems contain a box-type stainless-steel chamber with front and rear doors for glovebox integration (allows for both through-glovebox and external service access).
The chamber has a high aspect-ratio, ideal for long working distances for high uniformity coating via evaporative techniques, but systems can also be equipped with magnetron sputtering. A turbomolecular pumping system is standard, for high-vacuum base pressures of better than 5 × 10-7 mbar. Exact configuration is extremely flexible and dependent on customer budgets and applications. Configurations range from a manually operated thermal evaporation system up to a multi-technique tool with fully-automated process control.
All MiniLab 090 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.
