pulsed laser deposition systems from pvd

Pulsed Laser Deposition Systems

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.
