QCM Sensitivity with IBAD

  As a deposition system manufacturer, we have the opportunity to investigate what causes process problems, and how best to fix or at least address them. When you invest in a Techne IBAD system from Plasma Process Group, you also benefit from our insight into these problems that have plagued deposition processes since their inception. Here […]

QCM Control

If you run quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) controlled processes, you probably have noticed that a quartz crystal can seem very unstable, particularly on short layers. Since you rely on the accuracy of this device for the repeatability of your coatings, instabilities and noise can be a major headache and lead to inaccuracies. Selection of the […]

We do a lot of cleaning and repair service at Plasma Process Group and we let a good chance to see your hardware throughout its life cycle. For the same reason, we also get to see what causes that life cycle to shorten. Here are a few quick things you can do or keep in […]

Ion Energy with Assist Applications

     Ion energy, measured in electron volts [eV], is an important detail in the application of ion beam technology. At certain energies, an ion striking a surface will have little or no effect on it, while at higher energies, the ion may erode or damage the surface. Balancing the appropriate ion energy for the process desired […]
