PRE-STUDY OF A USER-DEFINED HIPIMS PROCESS
Dr. Daniel Lundin, Mr. Petter Larsson, Dr. Henrik Pedersen
Motivation & Goals
- Implement and/or optimize one or more HiPIMS processes or coating recipes
Pre-study aimed at initiating and evaluating one or more HiPIMS processes or coating recipes. In joint discussions with the client (along with experiments, if required) we will evaluate the current deposition process(es) and define state of the art as of today: How well do the equipment perform? How well do the coatings perform? The aim is to identify areas of optimization or new and innovative coating recipes. The project may also include how to successfully integrate coating recipes and HiPIMS know-how, owned and/or licensed by Ionautics, in the overall thin film process solutions used by the client.
Together we will set up a project plan on how to achieve the set project deliverables. The work will be carried out at the site of the client and/or at Ionautics depending on what is needed.
