Quantum Design International is proud to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Spin-Ion Technologies, a manufacturer of Helium Ion Beam material processing systems headquartered in Palaiseau, France. Spin-Ion’s Helium-S systems will be distributed by Quantum Design International in China, Taiwan, Singapore, and the United States.
“Our alliance with Spin-Ion Technologies makes a lot of sense for us as many of our customers are already working with magnetic thin films and the spintronics segment of magnetic device technology,”stated Aashish Chourey, Director of Business Development for Quantum Design International. “Their ability to improve performance and lower costs for the manufacture of spintronic devices and other memory applications makes them a valuable plyer in this field.”
Spin-Ion Technologies provides a revolutionary process solution based on post-growth He+ ion irradiation to tailor the magnetic properties of thin magnetic films at the atomic scale and improve their performances. The utilization of light ions provides the precise control of inter-atomic displacements through the low energy transfer.
“The collaboration with Quantum Design International was obvious for us” stated Dafiné Ravelosona, CEO & CTO of Spin-Ion Technologies. “They have developed a strong worldwide distribution channel in the spintronics segment for many years now. Their magnetic characterization-based instruments are very complementary to our tool that enables engineering of magnetic properties. We are convinced that their strong knowledge in magnetic materials and spintronics will be a real asset for us to market our unique scientific equipment.”
