IONIX® 2'' HV Circular Sputtering Source

The IX2 is the smallest IONIX® high vacuum magnetron with target diameter of 50.8 mm (2'') used in thin film research and development as it is the basis for small, versatile and economic R&D type thin film deposition systems. The target thickness can vary from 2 up to 6 mm.

The IX2 features direct cooling of the target with an integrated backing plate. The modular magnet array is completely isolated from the cooling water. A threaded anode allows easy adjustment of the dark space gap when varying target thickness. Optionally a magnet array for magnetic target materials ( for 2 mm Ni, 1 mm Fe) is available or can be retrofitted later.

Via the DN25KF interface the sputtering source can be either mounted on a straight Ø1'' or Ø3/4'' tube or on a tilt. Also ISO or CF flange mounted sources are available.


  • internal mounting with DN25KF interface
  • target diameter 2" (50.8 mm)
  • targets 2 - 6 mm thick, non-magnetic
  • optionally: magnetic targets Ni 2 - 3 mm, Fe 1mm thick
  • directly cooled integrated backing plate
  • magnet array completely isolated from cooling water
  • for DC, AC, RF and pulsed operation
  • water tubes Ø6xØ4 mm
