Metal thin film evaporation is important for microelectronics and MEMS. The thin film may be categorized according to the metal types, thickness, and surface profile coverage. These video clips will help explain the principles of metal thin film coating with either sputtering or evaporation.

An animation for the sputtering system with automated arms and load-lock systems.
A technical specialists talking about an Perkin-Elmer deposition system to explain the technical capabilities. I included this because it is realistic and very professional and technical. However, it may contain too much information for a beginning student.
