The anneal system located in Tube 6 of the MRL furnaces can process small pieces, 3, 4 and 6-inch wafers.  The system uses a microprocessor sequencer to automatically control the in and out movement of the cantilever, the tube temperature and gas flow.  Wafers are loaded on quartz boats and transferred into the tube at a slow controlled pace.  Users can run recipes for their desired temperature and backfill gases.  Recipe temperatures range from 600°C to 1180°C.

This instrument has material restrictions.  Consult the allowed materials list for this instrument in FOM.
