Using all known sputtering modes including RF, DC, pulsed DC and HIPIMS, VST sputtering deposition systems can be used in reactive and non-reactive modes.

VST sputtering deposition systems can contain up to 6 sources in a planar or co-sputtering sputter-up or sputter-down modes, with adjustable sputter angles and substrate to source distances. They feature customized RF biased substrate holders, with or without a load lock chamber and linear transfer mechanism. They can be fitted with Ion beam sources for pre-cleaning or ion assisted deposition. A completely automated process control system is furnished to ensure a reliable, repeatable and high-quality coating process.

Our sputtering systems may be designed to include additional electron-beam/thermal evaporation sources in the same chamber in two adjacent chambers that are served through a centrally located transfer/load lock chamber....

Our systems include small footprint R&D systems, mid-size single chamber versatile multi-process systems, large dual-chamber multi process systems, multichambered cluster tools and glove-box integrated systems.


We obtained quite immediately excellent process results on all layers that we had planned to grow using this equipment. The equipment has been running on a daily basis, and we have so far encountered no failure, and this is explained by the fact that the components of the system are of very high quality.
