Spin coater

Spin-coating is used to apply uniform thin films to flat substrates. The film material is dissolved in a moderate boiling point material and applied to a substrate that is undergoing rotation, typically 500-2000 rpm. The thickness of film is determined by the concentration of the solution or dispersion and the rotation speed and spin time.

This particular spin coater is used to apply thin (100 nm) polymeric films to ITO-coated glass for the fabrication of organic electronic devices.
