The evaporation stack holds the source-drain shadow masks and substrates in close contact for thermal evaporation. This is crucial for effective device fabrication as the source-drain channel is usually the most critical feature on an OFET. For use with the high density OFET source-drain evaporation masks. We have recently updated the High Density OFET Evaporation Stack. The new design holds 10 substrates in a radial layout to reduce shadowing effects.
The key component is the lower support which is milled from a solid block of aluminium to provide high precision recesses for twelve individual masks and substrates and allows mixing-and-matching of shadow masks within a single evaporation. For use with the high density OFET source-drain evaporation masks (sold separately).
The diagram below shows an exploded view of how the evaporation stack fits together. At the base of the system is the lower support which prevents the thin and flexible shadow masks from warping. This support has recesses in which individual masks are placed with a substrate above. A low strength magnetic sheet is placed on to pull the shadow mask in close contact with the substrates. Finally the lid is used to bolt everything together into a mechanically stable system that can be mounted in a deposition system at any orientation.
