The AJA International ATC 1800-F sputter deposition system can accommodate wafers up to 150 mm in diameter. The system has 3 targets for single layer, sequential, or co-sputtered processes. The platen or substrate holder can be rotated during deposition for enhanced thickness uniformity. The substrate holder can also be heated to 500 degrees C during deposition to modify film properties. Sputtering is a physical process whereby atoms in a solid target material are ejected into the gas phase due to bombardment of the material by energetic ions. Sputtering is largely driven by a momentum exchange between the ions and atoms in the material, due to collisions. The ions for the sputtering process are supplied by a plasma that is induced in the sputtering equipment.
