Small Bench-top Plasma System – Colibrì

Proudly made in Italy




Colibrì is a bench-top plasma system, designed for surface cleaning, modification and activation. It can operate on different materials such as metals, plastic, ceramic, paper and others.
Colibrì consists in a plasma reactor capacitively coupled that comprises a cylindrical process chamber with a couple of planar and parallel electrodes inside, entirely made of aluminum and free of welds. The top electrode is RF biased while the lower electrode is grounded. Thanks to a suitable sample tray, the samples to be processed are manually loaded inside the process chamber
The user friendly control interface makes the Colibrì an easy and versatile solution for small productions or R&D environments.

Principle of operation

Colibrì is fully automated by a microcontroller . The only manual handling to be carried out is the step of loading / unloading of the samples. With this system it is possible to perform treatments simply by executing one of the recipes editable by the user.
One process gas is introduced into the process chamber by using a manual valve. An LF signal (50 kHz) is led to the electrodes within the chamber; interacting with the gas molecules, this signal, produces the plasma.
The generated plasma provides reactive ionic species that act on the first monolayer of the substrate surface to be treated. The resulting process can be changed by the parameters that affect the state of plasma (gas flows and signal strength).
