Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD) system


Research area

Creation of single and multilayer structure of thin films for the analysis of structural phase transitions and magnetic properties of various solid-state materials.


TSST system: vacuum chamber with base pressure <10-7 mbar, UV excimer laser Coherent Compex Pro 205F.


  • Different material deposition, such as SrTiO3, BaTiO3, La1−xSrxMnO3, and more.
  • Variable temperature control (up to 950 OC).
  • Deposition in the different ambient atmosphere (N2, O2, Ar).
  • Laser fluence control by a Coherent laser energy sensor.
