Design and Construction of a Deposition Chamber for Thin Metal Films Research
A high vacuum deposition chamber is being built at Houghton College for studies of thin metal films. Metal atoms evaporated via an electron beam will contact a silicon wafer at near normal incidence, growing a uniform thin film. An ion mill will be constructed for cleaning the silicon wafers and for ion beam assisted deposition (IBAD). A computer-controlled shield will enable deposition of samples of varying thickness.
