UHV Pulsed Laser Deposition System
Synthesis of complex materials & crystalline structures is an ever growing request from research & development. The Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD) technique provides an intelligent solution for such requirements. It is a versatile coating technique that allows the growth of various materials such as nitrides, oxides, super lattices, polymers and composites etc.
With over 30 years experience in vacuum and UHV, Vinci Technologies provides tailored solutions to customer requirements with this laser-MBE system. This configuration adapts to a large field of growth parameters. For example, process pressure ranges from 10-10 to hundreds of mbar.
Flexible and evolving, this PLD equipment consists of a chamber with ports for process and characterization.
This system is compatible with 2-inch samples. The UHV & dry pumping design prevent the deposited films from contamination by external sources of pollution.
Samples can be transferred from load-lock chamber or from the UHV transfer tunnel the MECATRANS™.
