DCA wins tender for new multi-MBE system at ShanghaiTech University

Recently founded ShanghaiTech University has selected DCA Instruments to design and manufacture their new multi-MBE system. This custom-designed system will allow multiple epitaxial growth methods and materials to be used simultaneously. Two P600 MBE chambers  and an M600 MBE chamber will be interconnected by a linear buffer chamber, which boasts an integrated mask exchange system to prevent cross-contamination between chambers.


P600 MBE system installed at the Shanghai Institute of Technical Physics

DCA has completed the installation of a P600 MBE system at the Shanghai Institute of Technical Physics (SITP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

The P600 is designed to grow high-quality thin films of III-V semiconductors, with a focus on phosphorous compounds. The system features a linear buffer chamber with preheating stage (950oC) for degassing and cleaning samples prior to entering the growth chamber.

State-of-the-art reactive-oxide MBE system installed at University of St. Andrews

This summer DCA installed a state-of-the-art dual-chamber MBE system at the School of Physics and Astronomy, University of St. Andrews in Scotland. The custom-designed MBE system boasts two R450  growth chambers, a DCA-patented o-zone delivery system, and a linear buffer chamber equipped with sample storage.  A bespoke vacuum suitcase that enables the transportation and transfer of samples under UHV to external analysis systems  is included with the system.  This unique DCA system provides a gateway to producing promising new technological applications.
