Ion beam sputtering (IBS) deposition, mixturing coatings, broad band specturm monitor


The activities of the Cutting Edge Coatings GmbH (CEC) are focused on the process of Ion Beam Sputtering (IBS). This process has the capability to surmount the quality and flexibility of conventional coating processes. CEC - a spin-off company of the Laser Zentrum Hannover - uses the IBS coating processes developed in the framework of research projects.

Ion Beam Sputtering

One specialty of Cutting Edge Coatings coating systems is the capability of producing oxide material mixtures of variable compositions, which is the prerequisite for the synthesis of low-loss Rugate-filters. This innovative process variant shows the potential to provide highly resistant coatings and is the coating process to reach the highest thin-film quality. It is therefore preferred for demanding laser applications.

Moreover, the coating systems made by CEC are equipped with advanced devices for broad-band optical monitoring (BBOM). Hereby, customers from thin film industry will be enabled to offer and produce coatings with superior characteristics, maximum flexibility, and high value creation.
