Lesker U Live! is series of free webinars spanning many topics taught by leading vacuum experts.
Lesker U provides the following:
- High-value vacuum expert training
- A solid base of understanding surrounding vacuum technology
- Deep dives on specific vacuum technology topics
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.
