Moorfield nanoPVD-T15A (Benchtop Thermal Evaporator)

To better serve you, we would like to discuss your specific requirement, Please Contact Us for a quote.

MSE Supplies offers nanoPVD-T15A (Benchtop Thermal Evaporator) from Moorfield. It is a high-performance benchtop thermal evaporation system for metals and organics. It can be equipped with low-temperature evaporation (LTE) and standard resistive evaporation sources for deposition of organics and metals, respectively. LTE sources are low thermal-mass for better control when evaporating volatile organic materials, while metals sources are in our box-shielded TE1 models for efficient deposition and reduced cross-contamination.

Chamber access is via a hinged lid, that opens to reveal a stage suitable for holding substrates up to 4″ diameter. The chamber is tall, allowing for high-uniformity coating via evaporative techniques.

The units are easy to control via a touchscreen HMI interface, simple to maintain, have low running costs and come with a comprehensive range of safety features.

With a turbomolecular pumping system, high-vacuum base pressures, straightforward automated control via a touchscreen HMI and a range of options for flexible configuration, the nanoPVD-T15A is a versatile, efficient solution for world-class R&D applications and ideal for OLED, Organic Photovoltaic (OPV) and Organic Field Effect Transistors (OFET) research.
