Location: B47 Engineering Hall
Gold/Chrom thermal evaporator employs resistive heating of chromium rods and gold pellets in a tungsten boat to evaporate these metals. Substrates are mounted upside down on a mounting plates using rails for 4″ wafers or 1″ spaced holes and stainless steel hardware. There are no limitations on a shape and composition of the subtrates as far as they do not contaminate the chamber. Glow discharge pre-treatment is available. Working pressure is in the 10-7 torr range. Vacuum pumps are oil-free. Deposited film thickness is monitored by a standard quartz microbalance.
