Shape matters - Bipolar sputtering
Dual magnetron sputtering is a state-of-the art deposition technique in production of compound layers for glass coatings, functional films in electronic display technology or photovoltaic cells. Utilization of a pair of cathodes opened the possibility to industrialize large scale reactive sputtering by limiting the arcing probability.

A New Auto Frequency Tuning Algorithm
One countermeasure to fast plasma impedance variations is auto frequency tuning where on a sub-millisecond timeframe the RF power generator sets its fundamental to a frequency value with better matching. Conventional solutions for auto frequency tuning work with a trial and error algorithm. This white paper shows TRUMPF Hüttinger's new approach in which the RF fundamental is constantly FM-modulated with a selectable modulation frequency.
