Ion Beam Sputtering

Ion Beam Sputtering (IBS) is a technology that can be employed to produce smooth, dense thin films in a repeatable fashion.  The process itself is very repeatable, allowing Helia to realise precise coating designs in a controlled manner.

The coatings produced by this method exhibit high quality & low defect/porosity characteristics that can be used for a number of applications, especially those where the coating is to experience high power densities.  The durable nature of thin films fabricated in this way can significantly reduce the susceptibility of the coating to moisture & heat.
