PEZ 63-160-60 Production Effusion Cell for CIGS layer deposition. The cell is mounted in a cooling shroud
Production Effusion Cell PEZ is specially designed to meet the particular requirements for II-VI semiconductors, CIGS and for Kesteride solar cell material deposition. The operating temperature range is 200-1400°C. It allows evaporation or sublimation of a large number of elements and compounds, including standard materials such as Se, Ga, Cu, In, NaF, Sn or Zn.
The PEZ design offers wide flexibility to adapt to the particular requirements of UHV deposition applications with high throughput such as fabrication of II-VI semiconductor devices or thin film solar cell development.

Simple removal of crucible and beam shaping insert from top allows easy crucible replacement and source refill. Our proprietary cell encapsulation provides increased lifetime for the heater and the shielding in the aggressive Se and/or S environment.
The PEZ is especially suited for II-VI semiconductors, CIGS and for Kesteride solar cell material growth.
It allows evaporation of a large number of elements and compounds, including materials such as Se, Ga, Cu, In, NaF, Sn or Zn. The PEZ provides a robust cell design and the consequent optimization of many details leading to a improvement of stability and reproducibility, as well as excellent reliability and easy servicing.
Capacity for the PEZ 63-160-60: 160 ccm crucible for a 30° tilted cell geometry:
|copper||8,954 g/cm3||98 g||877 g|
|indium||7,31 g/cm3||95 g||819 g|
|gallium||5,904 g/cm3||77 g||661 g|
The PEZ 63-160 effusion cell is suitable for fast ramping procedures to comparably high deposition rates. With a precise dynamic ramping, the rate profiles of inline deposition systems can be reproduced. Process development and transfer from MBE-like co-evaporation systems to inline production systems become much easier.
