M Braun Glovebox with thermal evaporator

We have a positive pressure M'Braun glovebox system, primarily for making thin films of semiconducting polymer materials. We prepare solutions and spin under a nitrogen atmosphere, with oxygen and water levels limited to less than 10ppm.

For making devices, a K J Lesker thermal evaporator system is also available in the same glovebox. This is typically used for metals such as aluminium, gold, chromium and calcium, and also for the low temperature evaporation of organic semiconductor materials such as C60, pentacene and Alq3.
