IONIX® 10'' HV Circular Sputtering Source

The IONIX® IX10 has a target diameter of 254.0 mm (10'') and can be used with non-magnetic targets varying from 8 - 16 mm in small scale production systems. Optionally targets of 250 mm diameter can be used. The achievable film thickness homogeneity is ±5% on Ø150 mm substrates for selected materials, best distance will be between 50 - 120 mm and  must be optimized for each sputtering target material.

The IX10 features indirect cooling of the target. The modular magnet array is completely isolated from the cooling water. A sliding anode allows easy adjustment of the dark space gap when varying target thickness. Optionally a version with a magnet array for 6 mm thick Ni targets is available.

Via the ISO63 interface the sputtering source can be mounted on a straight Ø1''. Also ISO or CF flange mounted sources are available.
