Custom Systems

MVSystems has designed, built and delivered several custom deposition systems for a variety of applications and customers.

Hot Wire CVD

  • Single chamber or Cluster tool (multi-chamber) configurations.
  • Substrate size: 10cm x 10cm to 30cm x 40cm.
  • Substrate types: rigid with oscillation during deposition or flexible in a reel to reel (US patent #, 6258408) approach.
  • Filament types: graphite (US patent # 6214706 and 6427622) or conventional.

Cluster tools integrated with glove boxes

Glove boxes can be integrated to the load lock or deposition modules, e.g. evaporation chamber. This allows handling of substrates and access to system internal components within the controlled environment of a glove box.

High Temperature Deposition system

  • Sputter and PECVD systems
  • Substrate size 10cm x 10cm
  • Temperatures up to 800°C

Large Area Sputtering System

  • Multiple rectangular cathodes.
  • RF or DC sputtering.
  • Substrate size: 30cm x 40cm.
  • Oscillation during deposition.
  • State of the art properties for ITO, AZO.
  • Non-uniformity better than +/- 5% for TCO’s and metal coatings.

Vertical PECVD Systems

  • In line system.
  • Substrate size: 30cm x 40cm.
  • Handles two substrates at a time in a vertical configuration.

Other systems:

  • Deposition of CdTe, CIS technology
  • RIE and remote plasma PECVD configurations
  • Cluster tools for Organic PV technology
  • Nano wire/dots – high T ( ~900 C) PECVD systems
