PVD Products shipped a PLD/MBE 2300 deposition tool with a magnetron sputter source to Stanford University today. Researchers at Stanford will use this tool for the deposition of oxide mixed ion and electron conductors . Materials such as CeO2 doped with Gd, Sm etc., and perovskites like LaSrFeOx , LaBaFeOx, SrTiFeOx will be deposited via PLD. Studies of the surface chemistry will be undertaken on these materials for development of electrodes or catalysis for solid oxide fuel cells and electrolyzers. The combination of PLD and magnetron sputtering makes the PLD/MBE 2300 system an ideal tool for this type of research.
