Q150 GB Turbo-Pumped Sputter Coater / Carbon Coater for Glove Box

Q150 GB Turbo-Pumped Sputter Coater / Carbon Coater for Glove Box

The Q150 GB is a modular glove box version of the highly successful Q150T ES Plus bench top turbomolecular-pumped coating system – suitable for SEM, TEM and many thin-film applications. The Q150 GB comes as standard with sputtering and carbon rod evaporation inserts and a rotating specimen stage. Options include metal evaporation, glow discharge, film thickness measurement and special stages to suit a range of specimen types.

Based on the market-leading Q150T Plus coater, the Q150 GB is single platform for both sputtering and carbon rod evaporation. Metal evaporation using filament or boat sources is also possible using an optional insert.

Depending upon user preference, the Q150GB can be a top-of-the-range sputter coater for high resolution scanning electron microscopy (SEM), or a high vacuum carbon coater suitable for SEM and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The flexibility of the Q150 GB can be further expanded using a range of optional accessories.

The Q150 GB can sputter both oxidising and non-oxidising metals making it ideal for many thin film applications.
The Q150 GB has an integral turbomolecular pump and additionally requires a suitable rotary pump or dry pump to “back” the turbomolecular pump. See: Ordering Information for details.


  • Modular construction for mounting in glove boxes
  • Integral glove box pressure monitoring
  • Remote operation from a touch screen control panel
  • Metal sputtering and carbon evaporation in one system
  • High vacuum turbo pumping – allows sputtering of a wide range oxidising and non-oxidising metals
  • High vacuum carbon rod coating – ideal for SEM and TEM carbon coating applications (carbon fibre available as an option)
  • Vacuum shut down feature – leaves the process chamber under vacuum when not in use improved vacuum performance
  • Thick film capabilities – up to 60 minutes sputtering time without breaking vacuum
  • Integral pressure interlock switch – automatically turn off pumping if pressure becomes too high
