Circular ion source

Gencoa IMC75 is a compact and powerful self-neutralizing circular ion source, suitable for a range of applications and available with an associated power supply delivering improved control and automatic regulation of two gases.

With no contamination produced, IMC75 is suitable for semiconductor applications, with other processes including substrate pre-treatment of metals, polymers and ceramics, ion assist, etch/texturing and PACVD deposition.

The IMC75 boasts a long maintenance cycle - both in reactive and inert environments - and has an operational range of up to 90mA and up to 3kV. It provides stable ion beam current and ion energy distribution due to its integrated closed loop feedback control.

The IMC75 is easy to fit, with a 1" shaft mount, outer diameter of 5" and a tilting head for ion angle control. It can be paired with a 3" or 4" Gencoa circular full face erosion magnetron as a cluster solution for R&D applications.
