Q300 SEM large specimen sputter coater series launched
May 16, 2011 – This month sees the further expansion of Quorum Technologies’ highly successful ‘Q’ series of vacuum coating systems, with the introduction of the Q300 series – a range of large specimen sputter coaters for SEM preparation and thin film applications.
The Q300 is available in three formats: the turbomolecular-pumped Q300T T is ideal for coating both oxidising and non-oxidising metals onto large specimens (up to an 8” wafer); the Q300R T is a low-cost, rotary-pumped version for noble metals only; and the Q300T D is a dual head system that allows independent sequential sputtering of two metals without the need to break vacuum – making it ideal for many thin film applications.
Sales & Marketing Director Mike Wombwell believes this large-format series will build upon the success of the Q150 series that was launched during 2009/10.
“The three Q300 models cover many different user requirements and specimen sizes,” explained Mike. “The multiple sputtering head design ensures even coating deposition over a single large specimen or multiple small specimens.
“Flexibility and economy are key concepts with the Q300 series. Although primarily designed for large specimens, sputtering can be limited to a single source to allow economical sputtering of smaller specimens, such as SEM stubs.
” Featuring an intuitive colour touch screen, plus a range of easy-to-change specimen stages, the Q300 series combines state-of-the-art design with an exceptionally high level of performance and flexibility. Among the options is a film thickness monitor for measurement and control of coating thicknesses.
Like all other Quorum Technologies products, the Q300 series comes with a generous three-year warranty and specialised support.
About Quorum Technologies
Quorum Technologies was founded in 2001, having acquired the long-established Polaron brand and its range of electron microscopy (EM) products. Since then we have been proactive in responding to industry requests and requirements for new instruments and techniques, enabling us to develop over the years into a market-leading, globally recognised business. In 2005 we acquired the Emitech brand, extending our exciting range and growing the business further.
We continue to manufacture Emitech and Polaron instruments – now under the Quorum Technologies brand – at our two premises in the South East of England, producing cryo-SEM and cryo transfer systems, and EM (SEM and TEM) preparation instruments. Full details of these can be found in our Products section, and we also offer a wide range of spare parts, consumables and sputter targets that can be found and purchased through our Shop.
Our preparation instruments cannot be bought through our Shop, so if you would like to talk to a member of our Sales team in the UK about any of them, please call us on either +44 (0) 1273 815340 (for cryo preparation) or +44 (0) 1233 646332 (for sample preparation and coating instruments), or email firstname.lastname@example.org
