Capabilities

Electron Beam

Very high deposition rates may be achieved with this type of thin film coating process.

Ion Plating

In this technique, the substrate is electrically biased, which can increase coating adhesion to the substrate and allow us to tailor the physical and electrical characteristics of the coating deposit.

Sputtering

This thin film coating method produces a precisely controllable stream of coating atoms that exhibit high adhesion to substrates.

Reactive Sputtering

Ambient sputtering atmospheres may be controlled to yield reactively sputtered coatings, such as titanium nitride and aluminum oxide.
