Simple Ion Beam Solutions
Ion beam technology was developed at NASA in the 1960s as a means of producing thrust on spacecraft. Today, ion beam sources are used for depositing precise thin film coatings of oxides, diamond-like carbon, and other useful materials on optical and mechanical components.
We provide a wide array of ion beam products ranging from turnkey sputter coating systems through stand alone ion beam source and power supply packages. We offer a production tool, called Techne, that produces high quality optical thin films using ion beam assisted deposition (IBAD) processes. The ion beam sources we offer include both radio frequency RF and filament-driven DC styles. Our I-BEAM Power Supply family provides reliable operation for the most demanding production environments. Our ion beam grid assemblies, or ion optics, are constructed from molybdenum, graphite, or titanium and are available in a variety of shapes and sizes. We also carry a healthy assortment of spare parts including discharge chambers, insulators and many other items to keep your source running.
