Pulsed Laser Deposition Systems / PLD Systems

Custom, compact, advanced R&D Pulsed Laser Deposition Systems / PLD systems.

Our Pulsed Laser Deposition Systems / PLD Systems combine state-of-the-art functions and features in a compact, versatile platform that would form the centre-piece of any R&D facility. You are welcome to compare the features of our Pulse Laser Deposition Systems / PLD Systems alongside any competitive system, including the all important price. We are confident that you won't find a flexible R&D Pulsed laser Deposition platform that even comes close.

Our standard R&D Pulsed Laser Deposition Systems / PLD Systems feature:-

Pulsed Laser Deposition/PLD Sample Holder

Pulsed Laser Deposition / PLD Heated Sample holderThe PLD sample holder itself can be any from our PTS range which means it is fully interchangeable providing a range of cooling and heating options with no further modification to the receiving stage.

The sample holder accomodates 1 inch samples as standard and the entire holder is effortlessley transferred to the receiving platform via a standard linear transfer and load lock meaning you never have to break vacuum to change samples;

  • resistive (up to 1000 degC) or e-beam  (up to 2000 degC) heating
  • integrated water or cryo-cooling
  • quartz crystal deposition monitor
  • integrated temperature measurement and software controlled PID heater supply
  • precision UHV 5 axis movement under full software control

Pulsed Laser Deposition / PLD Target Holder

Pulsed Laser Deposition / PLD 6 Target Holder

The PLD target carousel is a fast change assembly that holds up to 6 x 1 inch tagets. Target choice is via fully PC controlled indexing.Internal View of Pulsed Laser Deposition / PLD System

Each target position is variable in the Z direction so that targets of different thickness can be accomodated with the target face always at the same position. All targets are water cooled as standard and targets not being used are masked with a cover shield.

Pulsed Laser Deposition / PLD Chamber ArrangementPulsed Laser Deposition System Schematic

We provide several system configuration options for maximum flexibility and ease of future upgrade. These range from a single chamber PLD system without any accessories to and an extended PLD system such as the one shown here which is configured with:-

  • PLD Chamber with base pressure <1E-8mbar
  • Radial Distribution Chamber for moving samples between Preparation and PLD Chambers
  • Preparation Chamber
  • LEED
  • Load Lock
  • Sample Magazine Introduction

Pulsed Laser Deposition / PLD Software & Control

Pulsed Laser Deposition / PLD Software

All of our PLD systems operate under a single software platform that controls and interlocks the vacuum systems (pumps, gauges, valves, venting and pump-down cycles), laser, sample and target manipulators and allows full recipe programming for multiple deposition steps.
