Vacuum Pump Technology: Intro to Dry Vacuum Pumps including Scroll, Roots, Screw & Hybrids

Many vacuum applications are intolerant of the hydrocarbon pump oil vapors that may backstream from oil-sealed rotary vane pumps. Several dry pumps offer similar pumping performance without the risk of oil vapor contamination upstream from the pumping system. In this webinar the unique pumping mechanism used in various dry pumps will be described. Special care and feeding considerations will be discussed as well as user-enabled testing and repair procedures.

Intro to High Power Impulse Magnetron Sputtering (HIPIMS)

This course focuses on the theory and practice of High-Power Impulse Magnetron Sputtering (HiPIMS). The theoretical side this course covers how HiPIMS differs from other sputtering techniques, the functionalities of a HiPIMS supply, and process parameters of interest. The practical content will be going over a basic HiPIMS process and discuss applications where HiPIMS has been shown to be a beneficial technique. The class is suitable for researchers with some background with the sputtering technique and who are wondering if HiPIMS might be suitable for their application.

Duration: 1 Hour(s)

Intro to Vacuum Science & System Design

This class is designed to introduce the student to basic concepts in vacuum technology and how they apply to system design and operation. Subjects covered include molecular density in vacuum, the ideal gas law, molecular flow in vacuum pressure regimes, characteristics of gas composition at various molecular densities, general principles of gas-solid interactions, vacuum pump technology, pressure sensors, leak detection and the impact of fundamental design decisions and operating practices on vacuum system performance. It is intended for people who are new to vacuum or may not have any formal training. It also provides a general review for those who have had some formal training in vacuum technology. The student should achieve a general understanding of vacuum technology as a foundation for further training in vacuum system design and thin film deposition.

Reactive Magnetron Sputtering

Reactive Sputtering (RS) adds an element of inorganic chemistry to the process of sputtering where metal oxides, nitrides, and other species can be produced, as films, from elemental or compound sputtering sources. This class reviews the rational for reactive sputtering and covers a review of the sputtering process, a discussion of the gas-phase chemistry that takes place during RS, how the process is monitored, compositional control, substrate bias, the effect of magnetic fields, and a general review of the issues critical to successful RS. The class will include an opportunity for Q&A with our technical expert.
