We have a Savannah S200 ALD system, equipped with 6 precursor ports, a fomblin vacuum pump, Ozone generator and a Quartz Crystal Monitor.
- Single combined vacuum and reaction chamber, providing:
- High productivity in multi-user, mixed process environment through rapid temperature ramping by direct conductive heating of the substrate platen.
- Minimal precursor consumption and short purge times through ultra-low volume of 430 cm^3.
- Simple precursor residency extension by hardware stop valve (ExposureMode™) for HAR or porous substrates up to 2000:1, or future flexibility with low temperature processes.
- Short learning curve and simple operation with no pressure balancing requirements.
- Manifold delivery of precursors providing:
- Robustness in multi‑user environment with inexperienced users through very short precursor tubing, (approx. 6cm from manual precursor valve to ALD valve) and reliable uniform heating of precursor paths.
- Precursors exchange in minutes by the user with minimal training or clean room supervision.
- Pre-conditioning of the precursor path (the manifold is a topological extension of the chamber) allowing option to precondition the total wetted route with a new solid surface which no-longer participates in the ALD process. (Not possible with single line delivery or delivery by two separate manifolds (precursor and oxidant separate manifolds).
- Experiment flexibility in multi-user environment through all precursor ports being capable of liquid, solid and gaseous precursors interchangeably.
