Materials Deposition and Device Fabrication
This facility houses a variety of ultra-high vacuum and thin film deposition systems including three Lesker PVD75 evaporators (both thermal and sputtering). In addition, it houses both the III-V and polymer device processing work area. The polymer device program has also recently acquired a Fuji Dimatix Polymer Materials Printer for enhanced device throughput. This equipment allows NPRL researchers to investigate the application of both semiconductingc and polymer thin films in various devices, such as polymer and inorganic photovoltaic cells, microfuel cells and battieres.
