Nanoquest II


nanoquest 1

Intlvac’s Nanoquest ion beam etch (IBE) platform employs state-of-the-art features and proprietary design to meet the nanofabrication requirements of the growing “More than Moore” market push. With its inherent precision and ability to dry etch any material, the Nanoquest technology uniquely fits the need to repeatably remove diverse materials which are designed into these innovative MEMS, optical, sensing, photonic, RF/microwave, passive power components, biocompatible, and memory devices.

The Nanoquest IBE directly regulates key plasma etch parameters such as ion energy, current density, and incidence angle. The Nanoquest IBE tools are configured to match the application whether it is the high aspect ratio and selectivity goal of a masked wafer or the high uniformity planarization of topographical diverse substrate. Recent advances in Nanoquest IBE technology include pulsed beam operation which address trends in atomic layer etching (ALE) developments.

The Nanoquest comes supplied with 150mm and 100mm wafer platens for load locked configuration with carbon masks for smaller sized wafers. With uniformity of ± 3% over a 100mm diameter, and a repeatability of ± 2% wafer to wafer, the Nanoquest is the ideal platform for your process.

The Nanoquest II can be configured for ion beam sputtering or ebeam evaporation or both. Also available is a motorized variable angle stage with rotation and temperature control.
