DST3-S - Sputter Only – Straight Cathodes

DST3-S - Sputter Only – Straight Cathodes

The DST3 Triple Target Sputter Coater is equipped with a large chamber (300 mm diameter) and three 2” diameter water-cooled cathodes which make it suitable for long time deposition. The magnetron desk sputter coater (magnetron sputtering) is equipped with RF and DC power supplies. It can sputter semiconductors dielectrics and metal (oxidizing [&] noble) targets (Deposition Table). The Confocal Sputter Coater is equipped with an auto adjustable matching box minimizing the reflected power in the RF Sputtering. For increasing film adhesion to the substrate and to improve the film structures a 300 V DC bias voltage can be applied to the substrate (optional).

DST3-S (Straight Cathodes)

DST3-S with three straight cathodes is suitable for sputtering a single large specimen with diameter up to 20 Cm or several small specimens.

Touch Screen Control with Colorful Display

The DST3, Gold Sputter Coater, is equipped with a 7” colored touch screen and semi-automatic control and data input that can be operated by even inexperienced users. The vacuum and deposition information can be observed as digital data or curves on the touch screen. Information of the last 300 coating can also be saved in the history page.

Clean Vacuum

The vacuum chamber is Cylindrical Pyrex with 300 mm OD and 200 mm H. The DST3 Triple Target Sputter Coater is fitted with an internally mounted 90L/s Turbomolecular Pump backed by a 1.4 m3/h diaphragm or 4 m3/h two stage Rotary Vane Pump.
