Veeco speeds ion-beam deposition for optical thin films
SPECTOR-HT deposition system said to deliver up to four-fold hike in throughput for high-precision optical coatings.
Veeco Instruments has officially launched its new ion-beam deposition system, a tool that promises to lower the cost of producing high-precision coatings for volume optical component manufacturers. The “SPECTOR-HT” system offers much higher throughput than its predecessors, with Veeco saying that it is the industry’s first fully automated tool to achieve “ion-beam quality films at physical vapor deposition (PVD) rates”.
