Manufacturer Modular Process Technology
Model RTP-600S


The 600S-RTP is capable of sustaining temperatures up to 500 °C for short periods of a few minutes. It can ramp at rates up to 50 °C/s. Process gases available are nitrogen and Tri-gas (an argon/nitrogen/hydrogen mixture similar to forming gas). It is typically used for brief annealing and other temperature treatment steps that require a very fast ramp rate. For sustained annealing processes at higher temperatures, the Tystar Tytan tube furnaces are better suited.

  • Rapid annealing
  • Spin-on dopant incorporation
  • Metal–semiconductor contact formation
