Large Order for Unique IBAD MgO Deposition System

PVD Products has received a large purchase order to build a unique reel-to-reel tool dedicated to IBAD MgO deposition for High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) coated-conductor applications. The system will include the ability to map out the ion beam profile from linear RF ion sources to provide optimized uniformity on the substrate surface. The system will also include in-situ diagnostics such as scanning RHEED to monitor the film quality within the deposition zone along the length of the tape. This system expands PVD Products coated conductor product line which currently includes reel-to-reel Pulsed Laser Deposition and magnetron sputtering systems used for deposition of HTS materials as well as a wide variety of buffer layers including ceria and protective over-layers such as silver. This new IBAD system is scheduled to be delivered in 2011.
