Flexible organic diode device fabrication is performed using Samco process equipment. Samco plasma cleaner PC-300 was used for wettability improvement of polyethylenimine ethoxylated (PEIE) surfaces and for work function improvement of gold (Au) electrode.

Someya lab, University of Tokyo is one of Samco plasma cleaner customers. Our plasma cleaner is used for organic transistor fabrication, and they have published several papers on cutting-edge flexible MEMS devices.

Samco plasma cleaners are versatile tools for plasma treatment and cleaning of various materials. For metal surface cleaning, gold plasma treatment is one of the common surface cleaning technique before device packaging. Not only gold but also various metal materials can be processed including aluminum, silver & titanium. We have a special process technique to reduce corrosion risk of metal surfaces caused by plasma cleaning process. Furthermore, multiple shelves inside process chamber enable batch processing of several samples in one time. For more spec details of the plasma cleaners, please visit the product page below.
