Other Shared Facilities and Research Groups at Lehigh

 

Thermal ALD: Ultratech Cambridge Nanotech Savannah 100 Atomic Layer Deposition System
Thermal ALD system with deposition temperatures from 80-300 °C.  Metal precursors currently available for Al, Hf, Si, and Ti, along with several oxygen precursors including H2O and O2/O3.  Several chemistries for molecular layer deposition are also available.  

 

Thermal ALD: Custom Thermal Atomic Layer Deposition System for in situ Analysis
Custom-built (2016) thermal atomic layer deposition system with large chamber for in situ film modification and analysis.  Currently under further development.  

 

HS-LEIS: High Sensitivity Low Energy Ion Scattering
Qtac100 from IonTof.  A variety of probe ions, sample preparation conditions, and depth profiliing are available for compositional analysis of the outermost atomic layer and depth (nm scale) of materials.  Available for internal and external/industrial users.  Contact Henry Luftman, hsl212 at lehigh.edu

 

XPS: Scienta X-ray Photoelectron Spectrometer
More info soon.  Available for internal and external/industrial users.  Contact Henry Luftman, hsl212 at lehigh.edu

 

XRD: Panalytical Empyrean X-Ray Diffraction System 
Purchased in 2016, a highly versatile diffraction tool capable of measuring powders, bulk solids, and thin films. Available for internal and external/industrial users.  Three incident beam optics include a Bragg Brentano HD mirror, a hybrid 2-bounce Ge monochromator, and a fixed slit holder.  Diffracted beam optics include a fixed slit holder and parallel plate collimator (for grazing incidence XRD, GiXRD, and X-ray reflectivity, XRR).  Pixcel 3D area detector enables ultrafast measurements.  DHS 1100 heated stage enables in situ heating up to 1100 °C in inert atmosphere, air, or vacuum.  Several software packages available including Highscore (powder analysis), Epitaxy, and Stress.  Files for Lehigh Users HERE.
