|Coating and Deposition Equipment
Coating and deposition equipment is designed to create thin layers of a material via chemical vapor deposition, physical vapor deposition, electrochemical techniques, spraying or roll-to-roll processes.
In chemical vapor deposition, a thin wafer is subjected to a number of volatile vapor precursors, which react with and/or decompose on a substrate surface to create the desired deposit layer. With physical vapor deposition, material transforms from a condensed phase to a vapor phase to a thin-film condensed phase.
With chemical and electrochemical techniques, chemicals are used to either change a surface or lay down a thin film. With spraying and roll-to-roll processes, physical means are used to create coatings and thin layers.
