Sputter Coaters / Vacuum Coating Systems - High Vacuum, Single Magnetron Target Desk Sputter Coater DST1-170

High Vacuum, Single Magnetron Target Desk Sputter Coater DST1-170

The High Vacuum, Single Magnetron Target Desk Sputter Coater DST1-170 is configured as a Desk Sputter Coater, specifically designed for Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) sample preparation. DST1-170 is versatile, capable of depositing a wide range of materials, including gold (Au), platinum/palladium (Pt/Pd) alloy, silver (Ag), chromium (Cr), tungsten (W), iridium (Ir), and more.

DST1-170 excels in producing high-quality, uniform films with fine grain sizes. These films are ideal for specimens that demand high-resolution and high-quality characterization, such as FE-SEM, EDS/WDS, TEM, and EBSD applications. Equipped with a 2-inch magnetron cathode and an 80-watt switching DC power supply, DST1-170 is suitable for various research and thin film applications.
