The Angstrom Engineering EVOVAC is a combination electron beam evaporator and thermal evaporator used to deposit Ti, Cr, Au, Al, Ni, Pt, Ag, Cu, Pd, Ge, Al2O3, SiO2, Ta, Mo and TiO2 with the ability to heat the substrates and do in-situ substrate cleaning using an ion mill. It is an open loop box coater with a dome that can run multiple wafers and substrates in each run.
All the e-beam evaporators in the LNF are setup using small point sources and long throw distances that lead to very directional deposition with minimal heat transfer. The “line of sight” nature means that evaporated films have poor gap fill but make the tool ideal to use for lift-off applications. The evaporators in the LNF use thin films controllers with quartz crystal monitor feedback. These controllers pre-heat the source materials with the shutter closed. Then, during deposition, the controller uses the feedback from the crystal monitor and varies the e-beam or thermal power to maintain a steady, preset deposition rate and to determine the total evaporation thickness.
