Clean Vacuum
The vacuum chamber is a Cylindrical Pyrex with 300 mm OD and 200 mm H.   The DST3T is fitted with an internally mounted 300 L/s turbo molecular pump, backed by a diaphragm pump. It introduces a clean vacuum without oil contamination which normally exists with ordinary diffusion pumps.

Three angled cathodes  and  Low-voltage thermal evaporation platform

The DST3T is equipped with a low-voltage (resistive) thermal evaporation platform suitable for a wide variety of thermal evaporation applications. The system allows controlled thermal evaporation of wide range of materials onto the substrate. Different types of thermal evaporation sources (Boat, Basket, and coil) can be installed on the thermal source holder. The DST3T is equipped with three angled cathodes with a common focal point. It can simultaneously co-sputter from three targets or independently to form alloys or multilayer thin film deposition.

Touch screen control with colorful display

DST3T is equipped with a 7” colored touch screen, fully automatic control and data input that can be operated by even inexperienced users. The vacuum, current and deposition information can be observed as digital data or curves on the touch screen panel. Information of the last 300 coating programs can also be saved in the history page.

The vacuum multi coater

The vacuum multi coater is equipped with RF and DC power supplies. It can deposit semiconductors, dielectrics, oxidizing and noble metals. The system is equipped with an easy-adjustable matching box, minimizing reflect of power in the RF sputtering. For increasing film adhesion to the substrate and to improve the film structures, a 300 V DC bias voltage can be applied to the substrate.
