Definition - What does Resistive Evaporation mean?
Resistive evaporation is a deposition process used to create a vapor phase deposition material by heating a filament via electrical energy in a vacuum.
Corrosionpedia explains Resistive Evaporation
A wide range of materials including metals, inorganic polymers, organic materials and precipitates can be deposited with resistive evaporation. Higher deposition rates are usually preferred and can be generated by using high vacuum levels and generating a long mean free path.
