Mantis TBS Evaporators (Thermal Boat Sources) are mainly designed for light thin film metal evaporation. Two variants are available with either two or four boats being available. The integrated cross-contamination shielding allows for simultaneous cross-talk free materials deposition. Individual shutters assigned to each boat allow perfect handling of the source. The optional QMB feedback to the boat allows for precise control of the deposited layers.
Thin Layer Deposition
The TBS Evaporators are perfectly suited for thin layer metals deposition.
Mantis TBS Evaporators (Thermal Boat Sources) are also used to deposit various optical coatings to create reflective / anti-reflective / hard layers or colors.
Due to the precise control of the TBS Evaporators multi layers can be deposited very efficiently.
Routine contact metallisation is one of the most commonly applied techniques to the TBS evaporators.
