Deposition & Growth

Sol-gel (complex oxide) deposition stations

The two sol-gel stations for depositing complex oxides such as PZT are located in a low humidity room to ensure high quality films. The stations include Brewer spinners for casting the sol-gel and high temperature hotplates to pyrolize the cast films before crystalizing with a rapid thermal process in the RTP 610 for complex oxides.


A wide array of sol-gels can be deposited. In addition to the sol-gels currently deposited, others would be considered upon request.
