The photovoltaic industry is always on the cutting edge of technology. If you work in the solar industry, you’re going to need advanced equipment for a variety of operations. Some of the processes within the solar industry include sputtering, thermal evaporation, e-beam deposition, and PECVD.

Do you need a sputtering system that sputters front and back metal contacts? Do you need a research-scale thermal evaporation system that supports active CIGS layer deposition? Or, are you searching for a system that offers the latest capabilities in plasma-enhanced chemical vapor it’s important to find the right system to get the job done. But with so many products on the market, it can be difficult to narrow your search to the right system. Here’s a look at the Explorer system, ideal for the solar industry.

Designed by Denton Vacuum, LLC, the Explorer is a thin film deposition platform that boasts the widest range of configurations and deposition modalities in the thin film industry. It offers electron beam evaporation, resistance evaporation, sputtering, ion plating, and ion assisted deposition.

When it comes to sputtering, the Explorer is able to sputter dieletric, magnetic, and composite materials. Clients can choose to add flexible cathodes that adjust to the impingement angle. The Explorer also boasts a powerful control system that is available in semi-manual or fully automatic mode. The system can be upgraded with consistent controls, standard software, source code, and network capabilities. When it comes to pumping configurations, the Explorer delivers a variety of diffusion, cryogenic, and turbo pump configurations.
