Expertise in Thin Film Technology
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.
Together with 30 project partners from 8 European countries scia Systems is working on the HiPERFORM - project to introduce wide band-gap power electronics in the drivetrain of electric vehicles. The main research objectives of the project are: cost reduction, energy efficiency and less volume of the devices. Research will focus on both new materials and improved manufacturing processes, such as the cost-effective deposition of gallium nitride (GaN) by magnetron sputtering. The topic of scia Systems is the development of a substrate holder which meets the special requirements regarding temperature and process time. read more
