Ionautics works with several companies within thin film and nanoparticle production. Our HiPIMS hardware is implemented world-wide in several types of magnetron deposition systems from major system builders.
Advanced Materials Processing Engineering Laboratory (AMPEL)
Advanced Materials Processing Engineering Laboratory (AMPEL) belongs to the Graduate School of System Design, Tokyo Metropolitan University. Whole research activities of AMPEL are to develop the multiscale manufacturing process for biomedical functional devices. From the scale of synthesis of nano-structured material to micro-meter scale thin film coatings, and to sub-millimeter scale metallic components, AMPEL tackled with the fundamental issues related to the manufacturing process. Thin film coating groups are mainly working on a development of low temperature growth of high toughened hard coating films to achieve the endurable functions in severe mechanical damages. To achieve its high functionality, HiPIMS based process development is the key technology for the future applications.
