How to Change Spin Coater Chucks

Changing Ossila Spin Coater Chucks

Instructions for changing the Ossila Spin Coater Chucks:

    1. Removing Spin Coater Substrate Chucks:

These chucks are equipped with a push-fit connection to the motor coupling within the spin coater. This process is essential for cleaning or when you need to interchange them with other spin coater chucks.


    1. Mounting Substrates with Custom Polypropylene Chucks:

Utilize the custom-milled polypropylene chucks to mount substrates of various shapes and sizes. Follow these steps to ensure a secure fit:

      • a. Identify the suitable polypropylene chuck for your substrate.
      • b. Carefully place your substrate onto the chuck, ensuring it's centered and secure.
      • c. Gently press the substrate down to secure it in place.

    1. Enhancing Film Quality with Recessed Design:

The chucks have a recessed design that securely holds the substrate in place without requiring a vacuum. This design reduces substrate warpage and, as a result, improves the quality of the film. Follow these steps for optimal results:

    • a. Choose the appropriate chuck for your substrate.
    • b. Place the substrate on the chuck.
    • c. Allow the recessed design to securely hold the substrate in place.

By following these instructions, you can easily manage the spin coater substrate chucks and achieve better film quality with the polypropylene chucks' recessed design.

Cyclic Voltammetry Applications and Uses What is a Perovskite Solar Cell

A perovskite solar cell is a thin film photovoltaic device. In these devices, perovskites absorb sunlight and convert it into electrical energy. Certain perovskites have fundamental properties which make them excellent at this. In some ways, perovskites are even better than the materials used in current solar cells.
