Abstract

A Hot Refractory Anode Vacuum Arc (HRAVA) starts as cathodic arc, heating the anode and depositing on it cathode material. When the anode is hot, all deposited cathode material is reevaporated from the anode forming cleaner radially expanding plasma. It was shown that the rate of deposition reached 2-3 µm/min with significantly reduced macroparticle contamination in Sn films produced by HRAVA with current I=60–175 A and duration up to 180 s.
