THIN FILM TECHNOLOGY
Benefit from our 30+ years of experience in the field of thin film technology.
THIN FILM TECHNOLOGY OF THE FUTURE
Thin film technologies are methods used for producing coatings of very low thickness, sometimes as thin as a few atoms. These coatings can be found everywhere in our everyday lives: from computer chips to special coatings on tools, glasses, jewelry, medical devices, and even food packaging.
We at FHR are your specialists for all aspects of thin film technology and vacuum coating. Find out more about the technology.
How It All Works
WHAT IS BEHIND THIN FILM TECHNOLOGY?
Thin film technology is a discipline of materials science and engineering in which very thin coatings or films of materials are applied to substrates. These films can be only a few atomic or molecular layers thick. Thin film technology is used in many areas of industry and research and entails far-reaching effects on products and technologies that we use in everyday life. By using thin film technology, materials can be produced with specific, customized properties that are often difficult or impossible to achieve with other technologies.
In addition, thin film technology can often help to save material and costs, as only very small quantities of expensive or rare materials are required. Thin film technology is a central tool in many modern manufacturing processes, and plays a central role in the development and manufacture of a wide range of products that we use every day.
DIFFERENT TECHNOLOGIES AT A GLANCE
Strong magnetic fields enable uniform and high-quality coating formation.
Production of flexibly adjustable mixed coatings with varying compositions.
Use of up to five different materials in a single chamber to ensure a high degree of flexibility and customized coating composition.
Vaporization of solid targets in the process chamber – This is used, for example, in the semiconductor industry, the optical industry, or in architecture.
Suitable for applying materials such as copper, silver, or gold, but also other materials such as silicon dioxide or indium tin oxide.
