IONIX® 4'' HV Circular Sputtering Source

The IONIX® IX4 has a target diameter of 101.6 mm (4'') and can be used with non-magnetic targets varying from 4 - 10 mm. 

The IX4 features indirect cooling of the target, a sliding anode allows easy adjustment of the dark space gap with varying target thickness. Optionally a magnet array for magnetic target materials ( for 6 mm Ni, 3 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 4" (101.6 mm)
  • targets 4 - 10 mm thick, non-magnetic
  • optionally: magnetic targets Ni 6 mm, Fe 3 mm thick
  • indirectly cooled targets
  • water tubes Ø6xØ4 mm
  • magnet array completely isolated from cooling water
  • for DC, AC, RF and pulsed operation
  • water tubes Ø6xØ4 mm
