PVD75 RF Sputterer

The RF sputterer can be used to deposit many dielectrics. Coatings are performed by accelerating ions or an argon oxygen mixture into the surface of a sputter target, which is made of the material to be applied to the sample. -Sputter two or more dissimilar materials simultaneously for complete control of film stoichiometry (co-deposition) -Max RF power 325W -Integrated touch screen control -Single substrate up to 12" diameter -Multiple substrate up to 4" diameter -Substrate fixture rotation up to 20rpm
