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 class presents the basics of evaporation of materials to make thin films. Concentrating primarily on resistive thermal evaporation and electron beam evaporation as the primary methods of deposition. It explores the importance of thermal conductivity within each technique and how it can be used to produce high quality and consistent results. The first 1/2 hour is devoted to evaporation basics and resistive thermal evaporation. the second 1/2 hour is dedicated to e-beam evaporation. Class is suitable for beginners in this technique as well as serving as a good refresher for those more experienced.
Duration: 1 Hour(s)
