Solar Thermal Absorber

Merritt is having experience working on the design and development of thin-film coating machines.

Designed automated coating machines using Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) with magnetron sputtering and Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (PECVD).

Supported its customers in developing advance technology machines for Solar Thermal Absorber, Transparent Conductive Oxide, and Electronics deposition applications.

The team has designed chambers and substrate transportation mechanisms that are subject to a high vacuum of 10^-6 millibar and operating at temperatures up to 600 degrees Celsius.

Merritt developed machines for the glass substrate size of 1.1m x 1.4m. The design includes integrating whole subsystems like vacuum chambers PVD & PECVD, Load lock chamber, Magnetron shutters, Substrate transport system, Vacuum line, Gas lines, utilities, integration of electrical and control panels, gauges, viewports, and Aesthetic machine canopies.
