Ion Mill

Make / Model : 



The Intlvac Ion Mill is used for non-chemical etching of thin films. To accomplish this, the chamber is first puped down to low pressure and then back filled with Argon gas. The Argon is then ionized and accelerated by an electric field toward the substrate. This kinetically energized Ar "sputters" or removes the film from the substrate.
