Deposition Cluster Tool from PREVAC

Deposition Cluster Tool supplied by Prevac is a MBE multi-chamber system designed for depositing metallic multi-layers from magnetic materials. The system offers sin-situ characterisation of sample magnetic properties, crystallography, and topography.

The Deposition Cluster Tool includes a MBE chamber fitted with E-guns for 8 effusion cells and 12 materials. The chamber is equipped with pumping system including cryo-panels. Deposition processes are fully software programmed and controlled through PLC controller. Samples can be heated up to 1400°C.

The system also includes a radial distribution chamber for semi-automatic transfer or distribution for reliable movement of up to 3" sample holders between characterisation and preparation chambers; a preparation chamber with LEED optics for direct and e-beam heating; a preparation chamber with high energy ion source for sample preparation, etching, and structure modification; a SPM chamber with additional tip and sample loading system; a MOKE characterisation chamber for in-situ Kerr effect measurements; and additional chambers for sample introduction and storage.
