Physical Deposition System - Microlayer 400

APXMicrolayer 400 System

Microlayer 400(APX Scientific Inc.) is a combination physical deposition system. Six magnetron sputtering guns and dual electron beam evaporator with 10 pockets for materials in ultra-high vacuum chamber allow depositing a large variety of materials in the form of thin films with the thickness from single nanometers to a few micrometers. Growth of single crystal and polycrystalline films deposited by sputtering or evaporation on rotating substrates is monitored using a crystal growth sensor.
