The OFET gate shadow mask is designed for thermal evaporation of gates either above or below the source-drain contacts on Ossila's standard OFET substrates (20 mm x 15 mm). The substrates are kept away from direct contact with the mask by use of a 200 μm spacer which prevents damage to delicate polymer layers and allows evaporation of any residual solvents while in vacuum chambers.
Update: As part of our product improvement program, we have decided to simplify the masks available. Each type of mask is now available as a two sided mask. On one side a spacer and substrate holder are welded to the mask and on the other just a substrate holder. This will make both options available for our customers to test out if they are uncertain which is best suited for their work. It also means you only need to purchase a single mask (rather than two) if you would like to use both systems.
Please note that the single sided masks are only available while stocks last. However, if you are concerned that the double sided masks will be too thick for your evaporator, please do get in touch as we will be happy to help with this.
The mask can be used in conjunction with the source drain evaporation stack and linear/interdigitated shadow masks to produce all four types of OFET:
- top-gate/bottom contact
- top-gate/top contact
- bottom-gate/bottom contact
- bottom-gate/top contact
