Ion implantation apparatus and a method for fluid cooling

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #7982197.

A hydrogen ion implanter for the exfoliation of silicon from silicon wafers uses a large scan wheel carrying 50+ wafers around its periphery and rotating about an axis. In one embodiment, the axis of rotation of the wheel is fixed and the wheel is formed with tensioned spokes supporting a rim carrying the wafer supports. The spokes may be used for carrying cooling fluid to and from the wafer supports. Detachable connections in the cooling fluid conduits in the vacuum chamber may comprise tandem seals with an intermediate chamber between them which can be vented outside the vacuum chamber, or independently vacuum pumped. In one embodiment, a ribbon beam of hydrogen ions is directed down on a peripheral edge of the wheel. The ribbon beam extends over the full radial width of wafers on the wheel.
