Technological equipment



  • Installation for the organic single crystals growth by the method of gas transport.

Installation consists of an external copper tube, two heaters, gas system and quartz tube for the crystals growth. Original organic material sublimes and moves by laminar flow of argon in the colder region of the tube. There the crystals grow on the walls of the quartz tube. Sublimation temperature - up to 350C, the flow of argon - to 150sm3/min.

  • Complex installations for the production of MIS structures on the surface of any substance, including organic semiconductors and superconductors.

MIS structures allow the effect of the electric field on the surface to 108 V / m.
  • Installation for polymer dielectric films.
Installation intended to cover the samples poly(p-xylylene) polymer films. The parylene polymers are deposited from the vapor phase by a special process. A solid, granular raw material, called dimer, is heated under vacuum at the temperature about 120C and vaporized into a dimeric gas. The gas is then pyrolized at the temperature about 700C and then in the room temperature deposition chamber, the monomer gas deposits on all surfaces as a thin, transparent polymer film.The thickness of the coating 0.5-5mkm (standard 1 mm), the dielectric constant of 2.65, Volume resistivity - better than 1014 ohm-cm, the dielectric strength - better than 100V / m, elongation at break - not less than 20%. The maximum size of coated sample - 2*2 cm2. These coatings provide excellent corrosion resistance, barrier properties and exhibit superior dielectric protection.

  • Installation for coating of metal films on the surface of the various materials.

Installation is optimized for the deposition of the metal on the volatile matter (for example, organic semiconductors). Since metal evaporates from the hot cathode, in order to prevent overheating of the volatile materials samples, evaporator is placed far away from the sample, and the sample is located on a massive copper block that is cooled by water. There is a possibility to install Peltier element between the sample and the copper block for cooling the sample below 0°C). Control of the film thickness during the deposition process is carried out by a quartz thickness gauge Sigma AQM-160.

• Temperature of the sample -30 - +20 º C.

• Evaporation materials: Al, In, Ag, Au.

  • Installation for the manufacture of contact masks for metal deposition by electric spark cutting.
Cutting the mask of a metal foil is made by a tungsten needle. The needle and the foil connected to the output of the HF generator and immersed into distilled water. At the point of contact there is a spark, burning through the foil. Cutting thickness is limited by the thickness of the tungsten wire (50 micrometers). Standard size foil 2cm, masks - 8mm. It is possible to make bigger masks.

  • Installation for quality control of optical films based on an interference microscope LUMAM.

Installations for the synthesis of organic compounds crystals  by electrochemical methods (on-site of IPCP).
