The Ladd Vacuum evaporator has been a very popular item lately. Perhaps it's because they are used in a wide range of industrial sectors. The objective of a vacuum evaporator is to controllably transfer atoms from a heated source (which can be liquid or a solid) to a substrate located a distance away to grow a film. The source is then heated directly or indirectly until the point is reached where it efficiently sublimes or evaporates.
Are you familiar with a Focused Ion Beam? Also known as FIB, focused ion beam systems have been produced commercially for more than twenty years and are primarily used for large semiconductor manufacturers. These FIB systems operate in a similar way to a scanning electron microscope (SEM), however, in place of a beam of electrons, FIB systems use a focused beam of gallium ions instead. These ions can also be incorporated at low beam currents for imaging or high beam currents for site specific milling or sputtering.
