Thin Film Deposition Systems

Used to make everything from semiconductors to solar panels, thin film deposition is a process designed to put a very slim layer of material - from a few nanometers to around 100 micrometers thick - onto a surface, or onto a previously deposited coating, in order to create stratified layers. There are two different methods used to achieve thin film deposition: chemical deposition and physical vapor deposition. Chemical deposition involves the use of a fluid precursor that generates a chemical change on a surface, resulting in a coating being deposited. Physical vapor deposition involves either the use of a vapor that sticks to a surface to create a thin film or the blasting of a surface with high-energy particles that are to be deposited.
