Turbo-Pumped Sputter Coater/Carbon Coater - The Q150T from Quorum Technologies

Turbo-Pumped Sputter Coater/Carbon Coater - The Q150T from Quorum Technologies

The Q150T is a compact turbomolecular-pumped coating system suitable for SEM, TEM and many thin film applications. This product replaces previous models K575X and K950X.

If you are looking for a turbo coater with two sputtering heads (for sequential coating of two metals without breaking vacuum), please see the K575XD.

The Q150T is available in three formats:

  • Q150T S - a high resolution sputter coater, suitable for oxidising and non-oxidising metals
  • Q150T E - a high vacuum carbon coater for SEM and TEM applications
  • Q150T ES - a high resolution sputter and high vacuum carbon coater

Key features

  • Metal sputtering or carbon evaporation, or both - can be combined in one space-saving design
  • Fine grain sputtering for advanced high resolution FE-SEM applications
  • High vacuum turbo pumping - allows sputtering of a wide range of oxidising and non-oxidising metals - suitable for SEM, high resolution FE-SEM and also for many thin film applications
  • High vacuum carbon coating - ideal for SEM and TEM carbon coating applications
  • Advanced 'anti-stick' carbon rod evaporation gun - simple operation, reproducible results
  • Control of evaporation current profile - ensures consistently reproducible carbon films
  • Precise thickness control using the film thickness monitor option
  • Fully automatic touch screen control - rapid data input, simple operation
  • Multiple, customer-defined coating schedules can be stored - ideal for multi-user laboratories
  • Automatic vacuum control which can be pre-programmed to suit the process and material - no needle valve to adjust
  • 'Intelligent' recognition of system - automatically detects the type of coating insert fitted
  • Easy-to-change, drop-in style specimen stages (rotation stage as standard)
  • Vacuum shut-down feature - leaves the process chamber under vacuum when not in use - improved vacuum performance
  • Thick film capabilities - up to 60 minutes sputtering time without breaking vacuum (rest periods automatically built in)
  • Ergonomic one-piece moulded case - easy maintenance and service access
  • Ethernet with local FTP server connection - simple programmer updates
  • Power factor correction - complies with the current legislation (CE Certification) - efficient use of power means reduced running costs
