NSC-4000 Sputtering Coater

NSC-4000 with auto load/unload sputter-up configuration

Sputtering Systems

NANO-MASTER's state of the art Sputtering Systems can be constructed with various chamber and source configurations for depositing metals and dielectric thin films on to substrates up to 200 mm. The systems can be equipped with DC, RF and Pulsed DC power supplies to enable sequential or co-sputtering. The systems come with a turbomolecular pumping package to achieve a base pressure of 5x10-7 Torr. Magnetron to substrate distance is adjustable in order to achieve desired uniformity and deposition rate. Rotating platen with off axis magnetrons provide means of achieving the best film uniformity. Crystal thickness monitor is provided for terminating process automatically. Platen can be heated up to 800°C and RF biased.
