Tittle:
Thin film coating technology
Summary:
An Italian startup located in Northern Italy, designer and manufacturer of thin film deposition equipment and components, offers a new manufacturing technique for the deposition of thin films that guarantees substantial advantages over comparable solutions in terms of quality, cost and yield. The company is looking for commercial, financial, licensing and technical cooperation agreements.
Description:
The Italian company offers a new manufacturing technique for the deposition of thin films. Thin films are very thin coatings, ranging from few microns (one thousand of a millimeter) to few nanometers. They can be used in many high-tech applications in research and industry ranging from electronics to mechanics and optics. Thin films are used, for example, to fabricate microprocessors, flat displays, photovoltaics cells or to improve the properties of objects and materials such as cutting tools, gears, lenses or window glasses.
The method used by the company consists of a pulsed electron source placed in a vacuum chamber. The target is composed by the desired coating material. When a discharge hits the target generates a superficial explosion and consequent emission of very energetic material in the form of a plasma. The plasma cools down on any object it finds on its path producing a coating on the object itself made of the same material of the target.
The company is looking for commercial, licensing and technical cooperation agreements as well as financial agreements. In the the case of financial partners, these latters could be both industrial or financial subjects and they should invest money for the further development of the technology. In the remaining cases of collaboration the partner should be an industrial company interested in using the technology (acquiring or licensing) or working together the company to improve it.
Advantages and Innovations:
Innovation consists in the use of a pulsed electron source placed in a vacuum chamber able to generate repetitively very short and intense electric discharges supported by a gas jet and directed into a solid target
The method used shows consistent advantages over conventional techniques such as:
· conservation of stoichiometry
· high deposition rate
· fine control of thickness and roughness
· low temperature / Low thermal budget deposition
· compatibility with a large set of materials
· low cost and robustness
The method used has proven to be a fast and effective technique for the deposition of notoriously challenging materials such as tungsten, zirconium oxide, aluminum oxide, silicon carbide, DLC and various complex compounds.
