The Labline electron beam evaporator system is a load-locked platform with cryopump for fast sample turnaround and user-friendly interface for precise control of film parameters during deposition. It is fitted with a Kaufman and Robinson EH 400 End-Hall permanent magnet ion source that can be used for cleaning and ion-assisted deposition during evaporation.

  • Metal deposition (Ti, Pt, Au, Al)
  • Lift-off
  • Non-selective etch
  • Ion-assisted deposition (simultaneous etching + deposition)
