Photo of an Evaporation Deposition System inside a classroomDevice physics research at Xavier University utilizes a state-of-the art evaporation deposition system that was purchased with funds obtained through grants from the National Science Foundation ($124,000), the Hauck Foundation ($20,000) and Xavier University. The unit is capable of three types of deposition: electron beam, sputtering, and resistive boat. The chamber is pumped down to extremely low pressures with a cryopump.
