Extreme uniformity at any power and any angle with Planetary IBE Wafer Scanning Technology


QuaZar™ Planetary IBE

Plasma-Therm's QuaZar Planetary IBE incorporate a unique feature of planetary scanning technology – the ability to sweep the wafer in a oscillatory manner across the ion beam.

This unique feature of Planetary wafer scanning technology results in:

  • Extreme uniformity control independent of wafer tilt angle (< 0.6% 3σ, 0° to -80° tilt)
  • Symmetric junctions middle-to-edge
  • Low temperature (<50°C)
  • Remote Plasma – neutral beam
  • Low damage

The QuaZar™ Planetary IBE system can also be configured with one or two process chambers. The second chamber can be added in the field, for increased capacity.
