P-100: Advanced Chemical Bath Deposition (CBD) Tool

Download P-100 Brochure

The P-100 is an automated chemical bath deposition tool for R&D or low volume production applications that require precision control of deposition parameters. The touchscreen based operation of the P-100 is simple and straightforward, but allows for complete recipe-based control of all deposition parameters.

The P-100 has been optimized for deposition of epitaxial, polycrystalline, or nanostructured ZnO layers, but is fully compatible with thermally-driven chemical bath deposition of many other materials. Please contact us with any questions about equipment capabilities.
