IONIX® 1'' UHV Circular Sputtering Source


IX1U is the smallest IONIX® ultrahigh vacuum magnetron sputtering source with target diameter of 25.4 mm (1'') used in thin film research and development. The target thickness can vary from 1 to 3 mm for non-ferromagnetic targets. The IX1U features indirect cooling of the target and a sliding anode allowing easy adjustment of the dark space gap when varying target thickness.

Optionally a magnet array for magnetic target materials (Fe 0.9 mm, Ni 3 mm with profiles) is available or can be retrofitted later.


  • internal mounting with CF interface
  • target diameter 1" (25.4 mm)
  • targets 1 - 3 mm thick, non-magnetic
  • magnetic targets Ni 3 with profiles, Fe 0.9 mm thick
  • indirectly cooled targets
  • magnet array completely isolated from cooling water
  • for DC, AC, RF and pulsed operation
  • water tubes Ø6xØ4 mm
