PVD Products Ships a PLD Coated Conductor Tool to Kurchatov Institute

PVD Products shipped another large PLD reel-to-reel coated conductor tool to the Kurchatov Institute in Moscow.  This R2R tool uses PVD's unique XYθ target manipulator with four 6-inch diameter targets, a high temperature substrate heater, and multi-lane, multi-plume technology.   A Coherent LEAP Laser will be used for high throughput deposition of YBCO films on properly prepared metal tapes 1 cm in width and up to 500 meters in length.  PVD Products has sold multiple PLD units around the world to customers including SRL ISTEC Japan and Shanghai Jiao Tong University.   These systems have been demonstrated to grow very high quality superconducting films over long lengths of tape.
