MBE-Komponenten GmbH offers ovens, deposition stations or heated stations which are resistant to oxygen or other reactive gas atmosphere. The oxygen resistant option is indicated by the affix "-O".
Selected shielding and construction materials are used for high temperature applications in oxygen rich environments. Maximum substrate temperatures of 700°C are possible using Ni-alloy heaters. Noble-metal-alloy heaters and SiC heaters work for even higher substrate temperatures of up to 900°C or in some cases even 1000°C depending on the oxygen partial pressures during operation.

Due to the wide range of different applications and processes in oxygen rich environments a general recommendation of heater and construction materials is difficult. Please contact our specialists for more detailed recommendations to your specific application.

The specifications and options for the SH-O substrate manipulators are almost the same as for our SH models. They are:

  • sample size up to 6"
  • continuous substrate rotation
  • water cooled ceramic bearings
  • linear travel for substrate transfer
  • thermocouple: Type K Chromel/Alumel (types R or S on request)
  • integrated main shutter
  • mask retainer

SH-O substrate manipulators are used in oxygen rich environments (up to several mbar) or reactive gas atmosphere.

Special care must be taken when compounds are operated at high temperature and high pressure. In case of pressures above 10-4 mbar the thermal conductivity of gases has significant effects to heat transfer from heater to sample. It is strongly recommended to contact our specialists when planning your application.
