Magnetron and ion sputtering as well as pulsed laser deposition are processes that we utilize to synthesize nanometer single and multilayer coatings. These coating systems fulfill highest demands with respect to thickness precision, smoothness, chemical purity, lateral uniformity and reproducibility. In addition to developing and manufacturing these coatings we also offer our experience in characterizing and modeling nanometer coating systems.

Reactive nanometer multilayers systems: tailored heat sources for low strain joining
Reactive multilayer systems (RMS) can deliver heat energy precisely and reproducibly to the contact zone. RMSs consist of nanometer multilayers with hundreds or thousands of individual films in their initial state. These films can exo thermally react with each other if activation energy is introduced.
