In situ heating of a Substrate during Vapor Deposition

During vapor deposition of a film, the film does not form evenly on the substrate. The film may form ‘islands’ which affects the thickness calculations, for example resistivity measurements and grain size from X-Ray diffraction, for the film. The goal of the project was to build a sample heater that would add thermal energy to the substrate. With the addition of thermal energy, the film may become more ordered allowing for better thickness measurements.
