System for magnetron sputtering


  1. Preparation of thin films by 20cm target sputtering (metal, ceramic, compound target) in inert and reactive atmosphere on samples attached to stationary or rotary holder
  2. DC, RF, p-DC or HIPIMS target sputtering, ion cleaning of the sample, substrate biasing
  3. Process control of preparation of oxides and nitrides by a feed-back control of reactive gas flow during deposition (stable conditions in hysteresis region) 
  4. Consultation and advisory work in a field of thin film preparation technology by PVD process

From 2013 after new magnetron is available 

  • Deposition by simultaneous sputtering of up to 4 targets on 15cm samples 
  • Sample biasing and heating up to 750°C during deposition process 
  • Preparation of monolayers, supergrids, multilayers and gradient layers using computer-controlled deposition process
