Revolutionizing Processes

Relatively new as a material process technology, ion source applications have steadily grown in popularity. As the virtues of ion-beam process capabilities are discovered, process engineers and researchers are achieving desirable film and surface properties which were previously not attainable without the use of our technology. Today, our products are applied in many commonly accepted processes, including:

Films Precision thin-film control
Thin films with thicknesses of several monolayers.
Semiconductors Semiconductors
Reproducible adhesion of metal coatings for high yield lift-off processes.
Etching Etch uniformities and critical dimensions
Etched wafers with tight uniformities and critical geometrical dimensions.
MEMS-Sensors MEMS, sensors, and displays
Surface modification and texturing to amplify surface work functions.
Lenses Precision optics
Dense and stable films with optimized refractive indices and low absorption.
Magnetic-Data Magnetic data storage
Anisotropic and uniform etching of nanometer features in metal and dielectric multilayer stacks.
Consumer-Eyewear Consumer eyewear
High-throughput manufacturing of durable AR coatings that adhere to plastic lenses.
Medical-Devices Medical devices
Hard and corrosion-resistant organic coatings which exhibit designable biological activity.
Photonics Photonics and lasers
Smooth, low-scatter, and optically pure films with high laser-induced damage thresholds.
