The Benefits of Ion Assisted Deposition

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
Discover Ion Beam Sputtering Deposition performance at a lower cost of ownership and higher ROI.

The Benefits of Ion Assisted DepositionWith self-neutralizing Ion Assisted Deposition from Denton Vacuum, you’ll produce denser films with less scatter than with evaporative deposition only, but without the cost and low throughput of Ion Beam Deposition.

Ion Assisted Deposition provides high-quality, defect-free, low-stress, environmentally-stable (shift-free) films required by the most demanding optical applications.

You’ll benefit from:
   •  Independent control of ion current density and ion energy to optimize film properties
   •  Long-term operation with 100% O2 or N2 reactive gases for stable operation with no process drift for extended runs

Self-neutralizing Ion Source

The proprietary RF source design enables full neutralization without filaments, plasma bridge neutralizer or hollow cathode.

This results in:
   •  Reduced cost of ownership
   •  Long mean time between maintenance (MTBM)

Last, the Endeavor doesn’t require a costly variable matching network, thereby, increasing reliability and lowering acquisition costs. Ask us about our self-neutralizing Ion Source at SVC TechCon 2017, booth 726, next week in Providence, RI!
