The EVO-25/50 MBEs are deposition tools for explorative material research under UHV conditions on substrates up to 2 inches in diameter. They are flexible system platforms suitable for a large range of MBE applications such as the growth of 2D materials, intermetallic compounds, oxide heterostructures or semiconductors. The EVO-25/50 MBEs include superior evaporation control software and offers multiple ports for in-situ characterisation.
The EVO-25/50 MBE systems are dedicated growth systems with a load lock chamber and with an optional preparation/storage chamber. The substrate sizes are either 1” (EVO-25) or 2” (EVO-50). Alternatively, the systems can be adapted to surface science sample plates. The carefully designed chamber with up to 10 effusion cells shows excellent thickness uniformity for all substrate sizes.
Due to the small footprint the EVO-25/50 MBEs can be configured to be either standalone systems with a buffer chamber and sample load lock or integrated with a linear transfer line or a radial distribution chamber as a part of a Materials Innovation Platform (MIP).
All EVO-25/50 MBE systems come with the MISTRAL control system together with a powerful evaporation control software. The control system is based on certified standard components for supreme reliability and provides a graphical status overview of all sensor values. With this software bundle, experiments can be conducted under well-controlled and reproducible conditions.
Software: MISTRAL & Evaporation Control
The EVO-25/50 MBEs include the MISTRAL control system together with a powerful evaporation control software. The control system is based on certified standard components for supreme reliability and provides a graphical status overview of all sensor values. Integrated safety interlocks protect the UHV system in case of power failure or a drop in water flow.
The evaporation control software offers a powerful script editor for programming individual process recipes. Additionally, 24/7 data logging of all relevant system parameters is included.

Materials Innovation Platform (MIP) with MBE, ALD, and XPS
The group’s multidisciplinary research focuses on the growth, characterisation, and device physics of quantum and semiconductor materials for novel devices and applications. Their approach utilises advanced molecular beam epitaxy techniques, selective area atomic layer deposition, and highly developed materials characterisation to fundamentally understand the nucleation and growth process, material nanostructure, chemical bonding, and experimentally determined band structure. They then correlate those findings with advanced electrical transport and magnetic measurements from devices that they fabricate to take full advantage of the novel properties of the materials and heterostructures that are created. Their current research interests include semiconductor defects for quantum communication, topologically protected transport in semiconductors and metals, magnetic properties in 2D materials, and back-end-of-line materials and device integration.more
