Thermal evaporators of the OEZ type are dedicated to the controlled evaporation of all kind of volatile organic materials. They can be used for research or production of e.g. OLED devices, organic photovoltaic cells, molecular electronics, organic spintronics, etc.

 

The OEZ product line denotes a group of diversified sources that are all characterized by excellent temperature stability, homogeneous temperature distribution within the crucible and a wide temperature range from 50 to 700 °C.

Several features and options make the OEZ a workhorse, suitable for research as well as industrial applications.

The PID controlled temperature stability of ±0.05 K allows precise control of the deposition rate. By design temperature hotspots and overshooting are effectively eliminated, which prevents decomposition of the organic material.

Optional beam shaping devices allow high film thickness homogeneity of the evaporated molecules along with an efficient material utilization. On request the plume shape can be projected by Monte Carlo method simulations.

Depending on the crucible size, OEZ cells can be used for evaporation of small amounts of expensive materials (for fundamental research applications) or deposition of large amounts of organics (in industrial production processes). Crucible replacement is easy and quickly accomplished. While quartz is the preferred material for the evaporation of organics, others like PBN, Alumina, or graphite are available as well.


Various models with single or multiple cells on the same flange ensure adaptability to miscellaneous organic thin film applications. The range of crucibles starts with 0.2 cm³ crucibles for small sample preparation in, e.g., surface science and reasonably ends with 25 cm³ crucibles for samples of several inches diameter.

With the rugged and reliable design, inherent to every OEZ, long and stable operation - a basic requirement for industrial and reasearch use - is guaranteed.

 

With integrated cell shutters both controlled sub-monolayer deposition and growth of thicker closed films is possible. An automated shutter actuation can be accomplished by applying electrical or pneumatic add-on shutter modules to the assembly, as shown in right-hand figure.
