Elementary sputter system includes: 

Sputter chamber with equipment 

Vacuum Chamber made of 304 stainless steel, equipped with connecting flanges in HV standard in different sizes for connecting 

current and further equipment. Base pressure range of 10-7 mbar. Chamber prepared for ”sputter down” deposition, equipped with 

following ports for: 

·        sample stage / manipulator 

·        turbopump with throttle valve, 

·        up to 3 magnetrons, 

·        gauges, 

·        quartz balance 

·        1 x DN40ISO-KF – spare in the chamber axis 

Large vacuum door gives a full, easy access to the chamber interior.

·        PENINGVAC gauge PTR90N (5x10-9 mbar – 1 atm.) with cable 

Sample stage for 2” substrate holders 

·        Sample stage without heating/cooling allows to mount 1 pcs. of substrate holder 

2 off Up to 2’’ substrate holder (Mo) 



Main frame 

·        Rigid steel frame for the system with wheels for easy system displacement. 

·        Safety switch with easy access on front side of the frame. 

·        All equipment like electronics, pumps, flow meters, valves mounted in the frame. 

·        Water flow controller. 

·        Nitrogen and air pressure regulator. 

·        Burst disk to protect installations against overpressure. 

·        Water, gas and exhaust for the fore vacuum pump – the connections on back side of the frame.
