Northumbria University

At Northumbria University, we are working on cutting-edge applications of various materials with a particular focus on photovoltaics. As part of this, recent installations of Moorfield nanoPVD and MiniLab systems for magnetron sputtering and electron-beam evaporation are playing a key role. Moorfield’s expert, professional advice ensured we obtained tools with the right capabilities and we have been impressed with the quality of the equipment and the rapid, high-quality support that comes with it. A pleasure to work with their friendly team!

Electron-beam evaporation

Like all evaporative physical vapour deposition (PVD) methods, electron-beam evaporation (also known as e-beam evaporation) involves heating a material under vacuum conditions (typically in the 10-7 mbar region, or lower). This in-turn releases a vapour that moves up through a process chamber and coats a substrate at the top.
