EVO 25/50 MBE

Small Scale Research Tools for Epitaxial Layer Growth


  • MBE system optimised for 2 inch wafer growth
  • Compact design and small system footprint
  • Flexible configurations, from topological insulators to semiconductors and metal oxides
  • In-situ growth monitoring
  • Reliable & fast sample transfer
  • Growth process controlled by advanced software
  • Designed as a module of a Materials Innovation Platform (MIP)

The EVO-25/50 MBEs are deposition tools for explorative materials research under UHV conditions on substrates up to 2 inches in diameter. They are flexible system platforms suitable for a large range of MBE applications such as the growth of 2D materials, intermetallic compounds, oxide heterostructures or semiconductors. The EVO-25/50 MBEs include superior evaporation control software and offers multiple ports for in-situ characterisation.

The EVO-25/50 MBE systems are dedicated growth systems with a load lock chamber and with an optional preparation/storage chamber. The substrate sizes are either 1” (EVO-25) or 2” (EVO-50). Alternatively, the systems can be adapted to surface science sample plates. The carefully designed chamber with up to 10 effusion cells shows excellent thickness uniformity for all substrate sizes.

Due to the small footprint the EVO-25/50 MBEs can be configured to be either standalone systems with a buffer chamber and sample load lock or integrated with a linear transfer line or a radial distribution chamber as a part of a Materials Innovation Platform (MIP).

All EVO-25/50 MBE systems come with the MISTRAL control system together with a powerful evaporation control software. The control system is based on certified standard components for supreme reliability and provides a graphical status overview of all sensor values. With this software bundle, experiments can be conducted under well-controlled and reproducible conditions.
