    Depositionskammern, Teil 3: Die Sputterkammer

    Die dritte und letzte Kammer in dieser Reihe (Teil 1: Die CVD-Kammern, Teil 2: Die Atomic Layer Kammer) ist eine Sputterkammer. Sputtern ist englisch für "zerstäuben". Daher heißt das Verfahren auch Kathodenzerstäubung, sagt aber niemand.Hierbei wird ein Material (Target) mit Ionen beschossen. Ähnlich wie beim Billard übertragen die Ionen ihren Impuls auf die Targetatome, sodass diese aus dem …

    Depositionskammern, Teil 2: Die Atomic Layer Kammer

    Die zweite Kammer in der Reihe unserer Depositionskammern nutzt das Verfahren der „Atomic Layer Deposition“. Ähnlich wie bei der CVD wird hier das schichtbildende Material gasförmig in die Kammer eingebracht und reagiert dort mit dem Substrat. Jedoch läuft in diesem Fall der Prozess in vier Teilschritten ab, was wir hier am Beispiel eines Aluminiumoxids erklären: Aluminium und Sauerstoff reagieren …

    Why Sharc25 and Swing need a SISSY

    Physicists love smart abbreviations, which are sometimes quite misleading. So Sharc25 is not about fish and Swing has nothing to do with a swing in the garden. Both acronyms stand for international research projects on thin film solar cells, which are now financed by EU Horizon 2020. HZB scientist Marcus Bär, who leads the HZB contribution to these projects, will do part of his work at SISSY, …

      please stay tuned, you can use EMIL and its multiple instruments for your scientific projects. It will open probably next year for user service.

      "It provides a variety of high tech tools under ultra vacuum conditions, allowing to analyze and observe processes inside energy materials"

      Wow. That is Really, Really cool. It would be great if you could take the data and make 4-dimensional simulations of these internal processes so that people could use them as teaching tools. Personally, I would be very interested to see such things.

    Interview with Sławomir Więcek, the "assembly man"

    Every week, the looks of EMIL's construction site are changing. These days, it has become especially vivid: The machines that will constitute the new lab are arriving. With them, many engineering experts have come to assemble all the parts and make sure everything works as planned. This week, I had the chance to talk to Sławomir Więcek, one of the vacuum experts of PREVAC:Mr Więcek, what exactly …

    Moving in

    After the last tedious stretch in building the EMIL building, months of dealing with things like what sink can fit the staff kitchen, cracked window sills and pneumatic fittings it is a real pleasure to see EMIL´s inner life take shape.The research hardware and lab equipment are coming in by the week. Some of them prime pieces of equipment that feel like really big presents even though I don´t get …
