Ion Beam Film Quality at Physical Vapor Deposition Rates
Produce the highest quality optical thin films with improved levels of productivity and throughput with the award-winning SPECTOR-HT™ Advanced Ion Beam System. Building on the proven performance of our SPECTOR® family of ion beam systems, the SPECTOR-HT system offers excellent layer thickness control, enhanced process stability and the lowest published optical losses in the industry.
For cutting-edge optical interference coating applications ranging from bandpass filters, beam splitters and laser passives, the SPECTOR-HT has been engineered to improve key production parameters such as target material utilization, optical endpoint control and process time.
The SPECTOR-HT gives manufacturers the qualitative advantages of ion beam sputtering (IBS) technology – low scatter loss, high film purity, stable deposition rates and film thickness control of <0.1nm – in a more robust package that significantly boosts throughput and lowers cost of ownership.
