Our Products Help Our Customers Our equipment is employed in vacuum environments where high purity material processing is the objective. Used in the deposition of thin films and etching of surfaces, our products are process tools applied in the fabrication of structures with critical dimensions, ranging from the micrometer to sub nanometer scale.
Because of the high precision capability, our products are engaged in creating material systems and surface features with atomic level control. Those who have benefited from this precision include:
Precision Thin Film Control Vacuum coating engineers have been able to grow and control thin films with thicknesses of several monolayers.
Etch Uniformities And Critical Dimensions
Process scientists have been able to etch wafers with tight uniformities and critical geometrical dimensions.
Our technology has proven to be valuable process tools in a variety of fields, technologies, and sciences. Some of the typical areas where our technology has been applied include the following fields:
High frequency electronics
RF / microwave
Wear & corrosion protection
Flat panel displays
Organic flexible displays
Relatively new as a material process technology, ion source applications have steadily grown. As the virtues of ion beam process capabilities become discovered, process engineers and researchers have achieved desirable film and surface properties which were previously not attainable without the use of our technology. Today, our products are applied in commonly accepted processes.
