The electron beam is used to melt the surface of a zirconium oxide tablet in a vacuum chamber, which evaporates. It evaporates from a Mo-liner Cu crucible. It only melts superficially and predominantly sublimates. The resulting zirconia vapors are then deposited on a thin film as a coating using the physical vapor deposition technique.
The zirconia tablet must be heated and melted uniformly and effectively by an electron beam to maintain its stability. The tablet’s vaporization and melting rate and stability are controlled by key operating beam parameters such as beam power, focus, scanning pattern, scanning frequency, and angle of incidence of the electron beam at the target tablet.
