Organic Evaporators

Depending on the type of organic material which you want to deposit you may select the evaporation source by our selection guide by organic material below.

Our organic evaporators are specially designed for use with volatile organic materials. They are applied both in research and  in industrial deposition processes.

The small version of the Organic Material Effusion Cell (OME) is dedicated for use in research applications where only small quantities of sensible organic evaporants are loaded with a sublimation temperature below 300°C. It OME allows fast heating and cooling which makes it an ideal source for expensive organic material evaporation.

For materials with typical evaporation temperatures above 200°C up to 700°C we recommend our Organic material effusion cell (OEZ). This source is also available as various clusters with two, 4 or more cells on one mounting flange with shutters quartz monitors etc.

For high capacity industrial applications like OLED or solar cell fabrication we offer large versions of the OME and the OEZ as well as large capacity linear sources. Please contact us for more detailed information.
