Supporting Your Manufacturing Needs

We understand that evaporation and deposition methods are now commonly used manufacturing techniques known for their ability to create high purity, highly uniform thin films of a wide variety of material types.

Already popular with the semiconductor industry, we are also seeing their usage in the preparation of more exotic materials, such as halide perovskites, for solar cell applications.

These methods can support many applications, including the designing of chemical reactors and vacuum chambers for evaporation.

With over 170,000 advanced materials available, find out how the highest quality ISO-certified materials can support your manufacturing and evaporation processes. With the support of our the team here at Goodfellow we offer your product customization to meet your needs and requirements.

Steering You Through Material Challenges

Purity is one of the critical parameters when evaluating a material’s suitability for evaporation processes.

Goodfellow specializes in creating very high-purity materials in various forms, including powder precursors for evaporation applications. Goodfellow can also provide innovative materials, such as:

Macor®: highly machinable glass ceramic known as a highly vacuum-compatible material with outstanding thermal performance, which is often used in vacuum applications.

Kapton®: thermally resistant up to 400°C, allows for electrical insulation of wires and components.

Ceramic materials for crucibles and other components, being chemically inert can also be directly heated to temperatures exceeding 800°C. Crucibles premanufactured from refractory metals such as molybdenum, tantalum, and alumina ensure compatibility with your vacuum equipment.
