PLD - Pulsed Laser Deposition & Thermal Evaporator System

Versatile Pulsed Laser Deposition and Thermal Evaporator system PLD–T is a high vacuum thin film deposition system enables to deposit different materials by both Pulsed Laser Deposition and so Thermal Evaporation technique. It can deposit complex materials and crystalline structures onto substrates with very little setup involved.Pulsed Laser Deposition technique leads to efficient none-thermal ablation and preserves the stoichiometry of the target materials. By applying this method it could deposit materials such as nitrides oxides super lattices polymers composites.

Thermal Evaporation Sources(Boat/Basket/Coil)

The PLD-T, Pulsed Laser Deposition System, can be fitted with three independent heat resistance thermal evaporation sources. The good design of the evaporation source holder causes no contamination transfer from sources materials to other materials. The length of source holders can be adjusted in the range of 5~10 cm which meets the costumer requirement.

Target Manipulator of Pulsed Laser Deposition System

PLD–T is equipped with a multi-target manipulator which includes three target with diameter of 2cm. Targets are in standard size and all of our target manipulators are motorized and includes target rotation.

Touch Screen Control with Colorful Display

The pulsed laser deposition system, PLD-T, is equipped with a 7” colored touch screen and fully automatic control and data input that can be operated by even inexperienced users. The vacuum, current and deposition information can be observed as digital data or curves on the touchscreen. Information of the last 300 coatings can be saved in the history page.
