ALTERNATIVE TO SPUTTERING FOR TEM AND SEM SAMPLE PREPARATION
AVAILABLE WITH AT410 ALD SYSTEM
Samples for electron microscopy often benefit from the addition of a thin film. It is typically a conductive material such as Pt, Pd, or Au. These conductive layers can help to inhibit charging, reduce thermal damage caused by localized beam heating, and improve the secondary electron signal.
Traditionally these films have been grown using PVD techniques. As technology advances, some types of samples are not served by PVD because the features that need to be coated are not accessible to line-of-site growth.
Researchers will benefit from having access to conductive thin films grown by ALD now that a system optimized for small sample conductive metal growth (with a price point in the same market as benchtop sputtering) has been developed - the AT410.
The AT410 ALD system provides a solution to conformal, conductive thin films for 3D sample prep while also providing traditional 2D coatings that are currently grown using sputtering/evaporation. The AT 410 not only pushes the boundaries, but is also an effective replacement for current sample preparation processes all within a benchtop configuration at a comparable price point.
Stainless steel precursor bottles have an open volume of 50 cm3 and are manufactured with high flow VCR fittings
Shutoff valve on bottle is available as a ball valve or as a bellows sealed valves. Bellows sealed valve option is now standard.
Bottles can be utilized at temperatures up to 200 ºC
The AT410 / AT610 ALD system utilizes an advanced PLC/HMI control unit with a high resolution 7” touchscreen display. The user would have complete control over the operation of the tool, recipe generation, and sensor data all through the easy to use and robust control SW interface.
Custom designed sample holders are available as additional options. All sample holders made from 6061 aluminum for superior thermal conductivity and uniform temperature profile
Glove Box Integration
- A standard AT410 / AT610 can be attached to a glove box with a glove box adapter upgrade. The system is sealed to an open side of a preexisting or new glove box.
- The deposition chamber and sample holder are completely sealed within the inert gas environment
- Air sensitive materials and substrates can be handled and deposited with utmost confidence
- 100% of the glove box floor and shelving will remain accessible after installation of ALD system
- Further information available from our partner company LC Technology Solutions
Recipes can be written and saved directly on the touchscreen. A quick start recipe screen with default settings and fully customizable recipe input are available. Multilayer and multicomponent recipe control is also standard.
Provided with an ethernet connection, the AT410 / AT610 system interface can be connected to remotely by engineers at Anric Technologies for remote troubleshooting and software upgrades. Upgrade can also be performed using a standard USB drive connected into the communication hub built-in to the back of the tool. Lifetime SW upgrades are included in the base price of the system.
