Source-Drain Deposition Mask, Low Density

Product Code E291
Price $300.00 ex. VAT

Shadow masks for deposition of source drain contacts. Designed for use in the low density evaporation stack with our standard sized substrates of 20 x 15 mm. Each mask will work with up to 12 substrates, each with five OFETs to produce a total of 60 devices in a single evaporation.


Linear channels of width 1 mm with two designs available of either five identical channel lengths of 30 μm or variable channel lengths of 30, 40, 50, 60 and 80 μm (one per substrate)

Number of OFETs 60 (5 per substrate)
Channel length E291: 30 μm
E292: 30, 40, 50, 60, 80 μm (one each per substrate)
Channel width 1 mm
Contact pad size 1 mm x 1 mm
Mask thickness 35 µm
Channel bar tolerance ±10 µm
Mask material Hard electroformed nickel

*E291/E292 yield of working devices is 90% (54/60).

The mask is designed in such a way that during the deposition of the gate electrodes on the corner of the substrate the metal should cover the edge of the substrate as well. This ensures conductivity between the metal electrodes and the p-doped silicon. If you find the edges of the substrate not to be conductive you must scratch the edges of the substrate to remove the insulating silicon oxide in correspondence with the corner where the gate electrode will be deposited.
