The OCTOPLUS 300 system is ideally suited for material deposition on small samples. It provides good access and easy operation and maintenance. The chamber design of the OCTOPLUS 300 plus various state-of-the-art components allow layer by layer precise MBE growth.
Outstanding features of the OCTOPLUS 300 are the high reliability and versatility of the system and its small footprint. These features make the OCTOPLUS 300 system particularly suited for applications in research and development. Nonetheless specific production processes are also covered.
The standard version of the OCTOPLUS 300 comprises 8 source ports, two ports with 4.5 inch (DN63CF) and six ports with 2.75 inch (DN40CF) flange size. By using Source Clusters up to 10 sources can be integrated into the system. A rapid pump-down load lock chamber with a horizontal working transfer-rod system allows easy substrate introduction without breaking the vacuum of the MBE chamber.
We provide different kinds of effusion cells, valved cracker sources, gas sources and substrate manipulators according to all our customers' requirements. A well-manageable in-situ characterization is obtained by using beam-flux-gauges, pyrometers, RHEED systems or quadrupole mass analyzers (QMA).
We are happy to discuss your MBE system specifications and give competent advice for your application. Do not hesitate to contact us.
