PVD Products offers a range of coated conductor deposition systems using pulsed laser deposition, sputtering, evaporation, and ion beam assisted technologies.
PVD Products is the world leader in providing complex coated-conductor reel-to-reel systems for deposition of HTS Materials and buffer layers. We have sold multiple R2R units based on PLD, sputtering, IBAD, evaporation, and have developed Solution Deposition Planarization Products with iBeam Materials.
PVD Products provides a full range of reel-to-reel sputtering systems for deposition of buffer layers for HTS CC applications such as CeO2, LaMnO3, homo-epitaxial MgO. We have a wide range of product offerings for sputtering systems including sputter deposition systems and IBAD deposition (evaporation and sputtering).

High temperature superconducting wires are made from a coated conductor wound around a cooled core material. The coated conductor typically starts with a 10-100 mm wide Hastelloy tape, followed by a yttria barrier layer, an oriented MgO nucleation layer, a YBCO high Tc film, and a thick overcoat of silver. The quality of the film stack is highly dependent on an exceptionally smooth surface beneath the MgO.
PVD Products can provide a variety of components for your own coated conductor reel-to-reel deposition system. We have delivered unique substrate heaters, target manipulators, Intelligent Windows, optical trains, tape transport systems, software controls, reel-to-reel chambers, and other types of components to customers around the world. These products are specifically designed for coated conductor applications and for long lengths of tape.
