Thermal evaporator available?

Hi all,

I would like to deposit gold with 1% antimony for ohmic contacts to an
n-Si/SiGe heterostructure. I have this material in the form of a thin
wire. Does anyone have a thermal evaporator in which I could do two or
three evaporations of this material over the coming month (or other

Note that antimony has extremely low vapor pressure, so it is unlikely
to contaminate other materials used in the evaporator, provided
different boats are used of course.

Thanks in advance,
