PVD Products, Inc. designs and manufactures thin film deposition systems and associated components based on the Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) processes of pulsed laser deposition, magnetron sputtering , and evaporation. PVD Products is a leading manufacturer of custom deposition systems, reel-to-reel deposition equipment for the coated-conductor market, and combinatorial deposition tools for rapid process development.
Our equipment utilizes the highest quality vacuum and electronic components for long term reliable operation with minimal maintenance. In addition to our existing line of thin film deposition systems, in-house SEM and EDS, and thin film deposition services, we provide custom design services for unique deposition systems tailored to meet your specific needs at a reasonable price. The four main categories for our products are as follows:
Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD) Systems use a laser beam to vaporize a solid target material in order to produce a thin film with exactly the same chemical composition as the original target material. The PLD process enables the deposition of many materials over a wide range of background gas compositions and pressures. See Pulsed Laser Deposition Systems ->
Sputtering systems by PVD Products, Inc. provide a flexible processing platform for meeting your specific deposition requirements. A wide range of magnetron source options are available including; RF or DC magnetrons for metallic or reactive sputtering targets, in-situ tilt, and target sizes ranging from 25 mm to 100 mm in diameter.

Coated Conductor Deposition Systems
PVD Products, Inc. provides a full range of coated conductor systems for depositing High Temperature Supercondutor (HTS) materials and buffer layers on continuous metal tapes. Coated conductor deposition systems are available based on pulsed laser deposition, magnetron sputtering, and evaporation with Ion Beam Assisted Deposition. Reel-to-reel systems allow for deposition on substrate areas up to 10 square meters in a single run. See Coated Conductor Deposition Systems ->
PVD Products’ complete thermal and electron beam evaporation systems are designed to meet the customer’s specific deposition needs. These systems can contain single or multiple thermal sources, multi-pocket e-beam sources, and multi-gun sources as required. Linear e-beam sources are also available.
