Cutting Edge Coatings GmbH, Ion Beam Sputtering (IBS) deposition, Navigator IBS

Cutting Edge Coatings GmbH

Cutting Edge Coatings GmbH was founded by Dr. Kai Starke in 2007 in Hanover, Germany. Hanover, known as an industrial city, is the capital city of the German state of Lower Saxony located in the northern part of Germany..

CEC's main business is to develop Ion beam sputtering (IBS) coating technology, with its main product being the IBS coating system - NAVIGATOR IBS.  Ion beam sputtering is known as an industrial coating process that reaches the highest thin-film quality. It is therefore preferred for demanding laser applications. CEC can provide customised solutions which are state-of-the-art technology and enables us to give our customers a head-start compared to their competitors.

New Project: Development of an in-situ uniformity measuring device and controller for an IBS process to improve coating thickness uniformity. The cooperation project aims to develop an in-situ uniformity measuring device that allows the continuous automated determination of the layer thickness distribution present in an IBS coating process during the process. The project is being carried out in cooperation with the Cutting Edge Coatings GmbH and the Laser Zentrum Hannover e. V.. More details please see our Research Page.

Dr. Kai Starke in 2007 founded Cutting Edge Coatings GmbH with the support of Laser Zentrum Hannover (LZH) and startet building IBS deposition machines. CEC is a spin-off company of LZH. More Information can be found in this video.

Laser Zentrum Hannover (LZH) is an independent, non-profit research institute for photonics and laser technology and its laser technology is famous across the globe. As a spin-off company of LZH, CEC has successfully transfered the ion beam sputtering coating technology from the laboratory to customers in research and industry.
