scia Systems awarded the contract of a magnetron sputter system for the Institute of Ion Beam Physics and Materials Research at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR).
The scia Multi 300 is mainly used by the Department of Intelligent Materials and Systems, headed by Dr. Denys Makarov. Main activity of this group is the development of physical flexible magnetoelectronics,. These shapeable magnetic field sensors can be used to measure, control and monitor all kinds of electrical machines, which is going to be more and more relevant for E-mobility and autonomous driving.
Other important fields of interest are interactive consumer electronics, in the manner of the Internet of Things (IOT), intelligent packaging and advertising materials. Another field of application for flexible magnetosensitive devices are motion control in proximity sensors for the skin or in smart implants, as well as for sensory feedback systems in soft actuators - soft robotics.
We are pleased to deliver a scia Multi 300 to the Institute for Ion Beam Physics and Materials Research at HZDR. The fully automated magnetron sputtering system, for the deposition of GMR and TMR based multilayer coatings, convinces with a very good homogeneity and reproducibility of the multilayer stack over 300 mm diameter.
