Planar Magnetrons

PhiMag planar magnetrons have fully characterized hermetically sealed magnetic arrays. Integrated gas distribution is available with single or multiple zones for tuning thin film deposition uniformity in reactive sputtering processes. The PhiMag planar sputter magnetrons are designed for high utilization and uniformity.

Designed with R2R web coating in mind the planar sputtering magnetron cathodes can accommodate DC, AC and RF sputtering power supplies. The cathode body can be grounded or floated depending on the thin film application.

With our in-house manufacturing capabilities we can design and build custom replacement magnetron cathodes for your current PVD coating equipment. Full 3D CAD models (both mechanical and magnetic fields) are available to ensure seamless integration into your vacuum thin film deposition process and vacuum coating equipment.
