Vacuum Evaporator - Glovebox - Spin Coater

The thermal evaporator is a multi-source metal deposition system which allows metal coatings to be deposited either sequentially or by co-deposition, at a controlled thickness through a mask. The multi-source evaporator is built into a four port glove box, allowing sample handling under inert conditions and also incorporates a spin-coater. Passivating metal or metal oxide layers can be deposited, and complete devices can be assembled in non-oxidative conditions.

This facility enables the fabrication of a wide range of micro and nano-scale devices such as the formation of electrodes in micro-fluidic devices; target specific electrodes after further modification in a range of sensors; top electrodes in organic photovoltaic devices, contacts in organic diodes and transistors.
