Thin Film Deposition Services

PVD Products provides thin film sputter deposition services for R&D applications such as combinatorial deposition and new materials development. We realize you may be planning your research or production expansion and need the equipment, but approvals and lead times are difficult to coordinate. PVD is committed to working closely with you from design and custom deposition system build through installation to:
Coordinate timelines
Communicate facility needs for deposition systems
Reduce lead time with our needs discovery process
So you’re ready when your system is ready.

Sputtering Services

PVD Products provides custom sputtering services for single or multiple small substrates or single wafers with up to 6-inch diameters. Our custom in-house sputter deposition tool can adapt a variety of sputter source heads for single-layer deposition, multilayer deposition, and co-deposition. We can provide DC or RF power sources along with RF substrate bias prior to or during deposition and heating in excess of 300°C. This system is capable of growing metals, oxides, nitrides, carbides, etc.


Combinatorial Thin Film Deposition

Our sputter system also allows us to provide combinatorial thin film deposition of multiple test pad samples on one wafer. Using our unique setup, PVD Products can provide co-deposition onto multiple pads of 1 cm square (or other sizes) of varying composition, grown at different substrate temperatures and/or RF bias levels. This tool provides for quick analysis of desired compositions and optimal growth conditions of new materials.





Immediate Deposition Service Needs

PVD keeps an inventory of sputtering targets at hand for coating test runs, materials trials, or short-term coating runs. If you have immediate demands for deposition services, we are often able to accommodate. We may have a deposition capability that could serve your short-term needs while your custom deposition system is in production. PVD is able to offer deposition services only if your needs fit within the confines of our existing tool. For extensive development contracts, your service costs may even result in a credit toward the cost of your custom deposition system.

What Our Clients Say


“PVD has a good response time. They’re always aware of what can and can’t work, and willing to do exploratory projects.”

John Smythe, Advanced Technology Lead, Micron Technology

Since all of our depositions systems are custom, we may not have a system in our facility that will fill your needs, but it never hurts to ask! Check out what we are working with right now:
