The OCTOPLUS 600 system has been developed for the growth of high quality III-V heterostructures on multi wafer 3x2 inch or single wafer 4 inch or 6 inch substrate. The MBE chamber is equipped with up to 12 effusion cells and valved crackers for deposition. The substrate manipulator applies to pyrolytic graphite or alternatively tungsten or tantalum heaters. The OCTOPLUS 600 MBE system is field-proven and ideally suited for III/V, II/VI and other heterostructure growth for applications in research and production processes.
Outstanding features of the OCTOPLUS 600 are the high reliability and versatility of the system.
The standard version of the OCTOPLUS 600 comprises 12 radially arranged source ports, 3 further source ports can be added on request. A rapid pump-down load lock chamber with wafer magazine, a heated station and the fully automated central transfer allow easy substrate introduction and handling.
Additional load-lock, heated station, or buffer chambers
Fully automated wafer transfer system
Wide range of components like effusion cells, e-beam-evaporators, sublimation sources, valved cracker sources, gas sources, manipulators
Software/hardware control system
Pumping system (cryopumps, ion getter pumps, etc.)
