Crucibles



 

Standard PBN crucibles
  • All kinds of crucible shapes

  • Wide range of crucible sizes

  • Standard PBN crucibles

  • Refractory and noble metal crucibles (W, Ta, Ir, etc.)

  • Pyrolytic graphite (PG) crucibles

  • Al2O3, BeO and MgO crucibles

Standard PBN crucibles of different shapes and sizes



Pyrolytic boron nitride (PBN) crucibles have become the accepted crucible material for use in MBE growth of semiconductor materials because of the material's high purity, chemical inertness, thermal stability, low outgassing, non-wetting characteristics and long lifetime.

PBN can be used for temperatures up to 1500°C. The maximum temperature decreases with rising chamber pressure. 
For higher temperatures or for special applications crucibles made of other materials like tungsten (W), tantalum (Ta), pyrolytic graphite (PG), silicon dioxide (quartz), aluminum oxide (Al2O3), beryllium oxide (BeO), or magnesium oxide (MgO).
Other crucible materials are available upon request.


Specifications

The crucibles described in the following are standard crucibles used in our MBE sources and are available as spare parts.For each crucible the respective part number, product code and suitable source type is indicated.

The crucible product code specifies material, nominal capacity (in cm³) and lip diameter (in mm). The nominal capacity is consistent with the capacity of the corresponding sources. Due to special material properties (e.g. of BeO or Al2O3), the actual filling capacity may be smaller than the nominal value.

Other dimensions, shapes and materials are available on request. Please contact us if you require more information. We help you select the best crucible for your particular application.

Important:
All dimensions are given in millimeters and rounded. Drawings are not to scale and shall not be used for manufacture.
No responsibility is taken for the correctness of the values.

    

The crucible product code is composed as follows:

material   shape* capacity other* lip Ø
PBN C 2 22
PBN 10 D 22

* omitted when not required

Abbreviations:

D   double wall crucibles
C   conical shaped crucibles
