Ionautics was started in 2010 by Prof. Ulf Helmersson, Prof. Nils Brenning, Dr. Daniel Lundin, and Mr. Johan Ahlström with the vision to provide the market with thin films and coating development from the very forefront of thin film technology. We believe that it is necessary to go beyond today’s products to reach increased product performance and ultimately a more sustainable environment. Our strategy for achieving this vision is to help our customers to enhance their production of coatings, outperform competitors by using state-of-the-art processes, as well as develop new tailor-made coatings in close collaboration with the clients. We are the provider of High-Power Impulse Magnetron Sputtering, HiPIMS technology and processes – the next generation in thin film deposition.
Our customers span from industrial R&D departments in a wide range of areas to academic research groups worldwide. Our thin film recipes and deposition technology are based on more than 20 years of very successful research on plasma and coatings physics at Linköping University.
