Leading Provider of Fiber‑Optic Networking Chooses DCA’s MBE Cluster Tool with Automated Transfer System

A leading provider of fiber‑optic Networking places an order for a P800 MBE Cluster Tool with automated transfer system. The system will be optimised for III-V MBE growth and includes DCA’s patented phosphorus valved cracker source with phosphorus recovery system. Additionally the Cluster Tool features a hydrogen/regrowth chamber and storage chamber. The automated transfer system […]

Multi-MBE (P600 & M600) system installed at ShanghaiTech University

ShanghaiTech’s first MBE system was installed by DCA Instruments this Autumn. This UHV system opens the gateway for researchers to perform high-quality material growth and develop complex structures. Three growth chambers are connected to the linear buffer line; two P600 chambers, one dedicated to III-V and the other to II-VI compounds, and an M600 chamber, […]

HZB for Materials and Energy recognized DCA Instruments as the top choice for high-quality MBE Systems

Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) for Materials and Energy selected DCA Instruments as the best option for a new MBE System. The custom-designed system will feature an R450 MBE chamber connected to a Cluster Tool Robot. This advanced capability allows users to automatically transfer of substrates between the process and storage chambers. System installation is expected in Spring […]

Trinity College Dublin announces DCA Instruments to provide bespoke Multi-MBE/Sputter Deposition System

DCA Instruments won the competitive contract for the new Multi-MBE/Sputter deposition system at Trinity College Dublin (Ireland). This versatile and complex system is to include two R450 Sputter chambers, a pulsed laser deposition chamber (PLD 500), an R450 MBE reactor, and a Cluster Tool Robot for automated substrate transfer. System installation is expected in Spring […]

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.
