Ion Beam Sputtering (IBS) Services

We Help Increase Your Coating Production 

Plasma Optik offers optical thin film Ion Beam Sputtering (IBS) services. We provide additional IBS capacity for your optical thin film production needs and can assist with your overflow and backlog when you need it most.

If your coating facilities are backlogged and opportunities are being missed, we are here to provide additional coating capacity without the expense of capital equipment investment. We work directly with you and your team to ensure the coatings you need are deposited to your specifications. In a manner of days, we can provide solutions to your production challenges. Use our services for that burst of activity and keep your customer happy.

Outstanding Coating Quality

The coating quality starts with a clean substrate. We offer substrate cleaning prior to deposition using a spin-cleaner technique and we can also pre-clean substrates using an ion beam etching process. Special carriers and substrate handling are also an option.

The deposition tool is located in a clean room and the deposition chamber has been equipped with particle reduction shields and fixtures. The coating process is done in industry standard ultra high vacuum environment with high purity target materials. Standard process gasses are ultra high purity Oxygen and Argon. Our goal is to make sure the coating quality should be identical to the IBS films produced at your facility (or maybe just a little better).

Years of Expertise

Tap into our decades of knowledge — our combined resources have years of experience designing and running ion beam sputtering systems.

Our coating engineers have worked on challenging projects such as the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) gravitational wave mirrors and telecom dispersion compensation filters. We have solutions for uniformity control and stable Ion Beam Sputtering plume for long, multilayer coatings.

 

 

Research and Development

We can also offer research and development services which can then be transferred back to your facility.

Low-Cost Demos

At little or no cost to you, we offer first articles and demonstration coatings. We want to earn your business and help support your existing production needs.

Total Confidentiality

We also want to earn your trust. Our process starts with a non-disclosure agreement. We treat all of our customers and their individual needs with total confidentiality. We recognize the thin films you produce are proprietary and have taken you years to develop. We are here as an extension to your manufacturing facility and we want to help you achieve your coating goals and deadlines.

Customization

What specific requirements do you have for handling, cleaning, and coating? We offer in-house characterization for some coatings or we send them back to you for analysis.
