Compact 2 Inch RF Plasma Magnetron Sputtering Coating Machine For Non-metallic Thin Films

VTC-2RF is a compact 2" single head RF Plasma magnetron sputtering system coating non-metallic, mainly oxide thin film. It integrates all components into one-floor stand cabinet, including RF power source, quartz vacuum chamber, vacuum pump, recirculation water chiller and film thickness monitor etc. It is an excellent and cost-effective coater for coating thin film of non-conductive material in R&D. 



Input Power

Application Notes

  • This compact 2" RF magnetron sputtering coater is designed for coating oxide thin films on oxide single crystal substrates, which usually does not need high vacuum set-up
  • Please use > 5N purity Ar gas for plasma sputtering
  • For the best film-substrate adhesion strength, please clean the substrate surface before coating:
    • Ultrasonic cleaning with the following sequential baths - (1) acetone, (2) isopropyl alcohol - to remove oil and grease. Blow dry the substrate with N2, then hot bake in vacuum to remove absorbed moisture
    • Plasma cleaning may be needed for surface roughening, surface chemical bonds activation, or additional contamination removal
    • A thin buffer layer (~5 nm), such as Cr, Ti, Mo, Ta, could be applied to improve adhesion of metals and alloys
  • For the best performance, the non-conductive targets must be installed with a copper backing plate. Please refer to the instruction video below (#3) for target bonding
  • TMAX uses the Coaters have successfully coated ZnO on Al2O3 substrate at 500 °C (XRD profile in Pic #5)
  • DO NOT use tap water in water chiller. Use DI water, distilled water, or anti-corrosive additives as colant.
