  • Publication number: 20200377991
    Abstract: A vapor deposition source 14 according to one embodiment includes a crucible 20 that contains a vapor deposition material 6 to be heated and evaporated by irradiation with an electron beam EB, and a heater 22 disposed to surround an edge 20b of the crucible 20 closer to an opening 20a thereof. This configuration allows the edge of the crucible to be heated by the heater, and thus allows the vapor deposition material crawling up toward the edge to be evaporated. As a result, the vapor deposition material can be kept from flowing out and being deposited due to the vapor deposition material crawling up to the edge of the crucible.
