Octopus II system
Versatile solutions for R&D Large Area Deposition and Pilot Production Lines

The OCTOPUS II system


he Octopus II system is the latest product generation of the OCTOPUS equipment portfolio. The OCTOPUS II combines a couple of all-new, impressive and proprietary reactor and system design developments such as the IRFE technology for exceptional stable plasma conditions, the Mirror reactor concept for top and bottom deposition or the potential combination of the PECVD and PVD deposition mode in one system without any interruption of the process sequence.
This set of innovations as well as the cluster platform concept provide an extraordinary high flexibility for many thin film applications, whether in an R&D environment or for pilot scale production purposes.


Octopus II Applications



  • Semi-conducting layers: a-Si:H, µc-Si:H, nc-Si:H, SiGe:H etc.
  • AR and passivation layers: SiNx, SiONx, AlOx, TiOx, MoOx etc.


  • TCO layers : ITO, AZO etc.
  • Metal layers : Ag, Al, Cr etc.


  • PV : Heterojunction cell devices
  • Optical coatings: Filters (Bandpass, IR, UV, Color correction) etc.
  • Semi: MEMS

he principal possibility for the combination of all available process modules with each other makes OCTOPUS II an ideal candidate for all kind of R&D thin film deposition tasks and assignments. Find below further features, which are interesting for R&D labs:

  • Small system footprint: 3.25m x 3.60 m (PECVD), 6.8m x 3.25 (PECVD + PVD)
  • Parallel or sequential process operation mode (chamber-to-chamber)
  • Load lock feeding capacity for up to 6 substrates or carrier plates
  • In-situ cleaning PECVD

OCTOPUS II for Pilot Production


For all stages of thin deposition processes, which enter the advanced development phase of statistical data assurance, the OCTOPUS II system unfolds its real power. Still keeping the footprint of an R&D tool, the system may be equipped with up to 7 process modules of identical configuration, thus enabling quick and easy small series scale-up and parallel processing (the same process per module at the same time).

  • Fully automated or semi-automated operation mode
  • Every process module outfitted with its own power supply, match box and process pump system (parallel process enabled)
  • Load-lock In and load-lock Out separated or as one loading unit (Note: PVD with separate load-lock by default)
  • Pre-heating and cooling module
  • OCTOPUS II R&D is fully upgradable to pilot scale capacity
