Training: Sputter coater training (online) - Harvard Training Portal
Trainer: Jules Gardener
This training is for the HAR-050 EMS dual head and HAR-053 EMS single head sputter coaters located in the CNS Imaging sample preparation room (LISE B15A). These tools are optimized for coating SEM samples with a thin conductive layer. The HAR-050 is equipped with Pt/Pd and Au targets, although Cr is available as an adhesion layer upon request. The HAR-053 is for Pt/Pd deposition only. We cannot accommodate other metal targets in this sputter coater, and this instrument is not suitable for depositing thick films.

Sputter coater training is available in an online format for these tools.

SP-3 can deposit many different materials including conductive metals and oxide and nitride materials (Al, Cu, Si3N4, SiO2, etc.). No ferromagnetics (including Ni, Fe, Co) are allowed in SP-3. CNS does not supply Au or Pt for use in SP-3. The system has process O2 flow, process N2 flow, substrate heating to 850C, and can facilitate co-sputtering with 1 RF and 1 DC gun. After an additional one-to-one training for target changes, the user can then change targets on their own to fit their own schedule. After 3 uses (with no problems) users are given 24/7 access.
