Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD)
Perform Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD) with our uniquely powerful excimer lasers.
- Stoichiometric PLD Use our rugged COMPex lasers for stoichiometric PLD results.
- Large Area PLD Our high-power LEAP lasers deliver large areas of high performance thin films.
- Three-shift PLD Benefit from uptime and longevity offered by our field-proven excimer lasers.
High-Temperature Superconducting (HTS) Tapes
Excimer-based PLD is the only proven volume production method to make rare earth barium copper oxide (REBCO) films with the quality needed for multilayer HTS tapes.
RADIO FREQUENCY FILTERS
Excimer laser PLD enables piezoelectric scandium-doped aluminum nitride (Sc: AlN) thin films for RF filters, delivering the piezo-response and high-frequency RF properties needed for 5G and beyond.
Diamond-like Carbon (DLC) Layers
Excimer lasers create hydrogen-free DLC layers in a low temperature PLD process and ensure very good adhesion to a wide range of materials via excimer laser annealing.
Thin Film Wafers
Excimer laser PLD can produce more complex and crystalline thin films over larger (up to 300 mm) wafers for use in MEMS, semiconductors, photovoltaics, and OLED displays.
Solid-State Thin-Film Batteries
PLD delivers advanced solid electrolytes, including anode and cathode materials, with adjustable density and stoichiometry as well as nanometer range thickness precision.
Transparent Conductive Oxides
(PLD) gently deposits high-uniformity transparent electrodes over sensitive organic layers, enabling buffer-free semi-transparent perovskite solar cells.
