scia Systems develops ion beam and plasma process systems for nanometer-precise processing of surfaces. The company offers standard systems and customized tools using a wide range of coating and etching processes. Furthermore scia Systems is a capable and reliable service provider with a variety of services from classic support to retrofit of existing equipment.
scia Systems was awarded a contract by the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center of Greenbelt, MD, USA to supply a scia Trim 200 for Ion Beam Figuring.
The NASA GSFC has one of the nation's largest groups of scientists and engineers who build spacecraft, instruments, and develop new technology to study Earth, the sun, our solar system and the universe.
The scia Trim 200 will be used for the finishing of mono-crystalline mirror substrates for x-ray telescopes. scia Systems is very much looking forward to working with NASA to enable further astronomical understanding of the universe.
