The control panel for this system has recently been updated and new images are not yet available. They will be posted as soon as they are.


The 208HRD High Resolution Sputter Coater from Cressington offers real solutions to the problems encountered when coating difficult samples for FESEM imaging. FESEM applications need extremely thin, fine-grained, uniform coatings to eliminate charging and to improve contrast on low density materials. In order to minimize the effects of grain size, the 208HR offers a full range of coating materials and gives unprecedented control over thickness and deposition conditions. The 208HRD Turbo Pumped High Vacuum System offers a wide range of operating pressures allowing precise control of both uniformity and conformity of the coating, minimizing charging effects.



The 208HRD High Resolution Sputter Coater is a complete coating solution, including as standard:



cressington mtm-20 high resolution thickness controller  
MTM-20 High Resolution
Thickness Controller
  Rotary-Planetary-Tilting RPT Stage demonstrating
variable speed settings and adjustable tilt.


Main Features:



208HRD Sputter Head

The 208HRD employs a compact 28mm diameter target design that offers higher efficiency to better utilize more expensive target materials such as iridium. An additional benefit with using a smaller diameter sputter source is that it helps lower the total system cost with target compared to larger target systems.

208HRD Chamber

The 208HRD has a modular chamber that consists of glass chamber, metal spacer rings (2 included), and rotary-planetary-tilting stage. These components are labeled in the image below.

The sputter head support pillar can be adjusted into three different positions, varying the overall chamber height. Each adjustment location corresponds to a different metal spacer/ glass chamber / rotary-planetary-tilting RPT stage configuration. The addition of a spacer ring above the RPT stage increases the deposition distances by 15mm (height of metal spacer ring). Two metal spacers are included with the 208HRD, but a third (#8091-1) can be purchased separately.
