Abstract

The long term goal of my research project requires that we are able to deposit thin layers of type II superconductive materials onto various samples through a process of AC sputtering. The process for creating type II superconductive material requires precise temperature control in a high temperature (up to 900 °C) oven over the span of 16+ hours. To accomplish this I designed and built a temperature controller that utilizes a PSoC (Programmable embedded system-on-a-chip) which is capable of monitoring the temperature inside the oven and making the necessary adjustments to successfully synthesize the superconductive material.
