Miniature Evaporation System
e-Vap® Mighty Source™ system

Practical, low-cost, and highly reliable electron beam deposition sources are the future as we know it today. MDC introduces the e-Vap® “Mighty Source™”– a 4 pocket x 2cc rotary electron beam source. Affordable and extremely compact, it stands just 2.4-inches tall by 4-inches long by 2.8-inches wide. Is there anything smaller out there? 

The Mighty Source™ is rated for 3 kilowatts of power which makes it an ideal deposition tool for evaporating metals, oxides, metal-oxides, and magnetic materials. Designed into the source body are two hermetically-sealed XY-axis sweep coils that allow you to sweep the electron beam across the crucible pocket, resulting in the maximization of your coating process in terms of material stability and consistency. 

The Mighty Source™ design is specifically tailored for the following uses – pilot production, lab/R&D applications, and the university marketplace. Its compact design features allow it to be mounted onto a 2-3/4-inch Del-Seal CF flange or onto a 6-inch or 10-inch Del-Seal CF flange in either horizontal or vertical configurations. To complete this product system, MDC also offers a 3kw power supply and low cost XY sweep controller.
