Thin Film Industry

InstruTech provides extremely reliable vacuum measurement products with multi-functional features at very attractive prices. They offer a variety of vacuum gauges or controllers which will prove invaluable for controlling vacuum processes related to thin film deposition . Thin film deposition is vital to a wide variety of coating processes such as glass, optics, solar, display, and web coatings.

Some of the common vacuum deposition processes include:

  • Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) – high-temperature vacuum evaporation/condensation to deposit a vaporized form of the desired sputtering material onto the surface.
  • Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (PECVD) – deposits thin films from a vapor state using chemical reactions caused by the creation of plasma between reacting gases. This allows for surface temperatures that are much lower than traditional CVD. Tight control of CVD processes is critical for high yields and lower costs.
