Technology:

The activities of the Cutting Edge Coatings GmbH are focused on the process of Ion -Beam Sputtering (IBS). This process has the capability to surmount the quality and flexibility of conventional coating processes. The spin-off company of the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. uses the IBS coating processes developed in the framework of research projects.

Ion Beam Sputtering

One specialty of Cutting Edge Coatings coating systems is the capability of producing oxide material mixtures of variable compositions, which is the prerequisite for the synthesis of low-loss Rugate-filters. This innovative process variant shows the potential to provide highly resistant coatings for demanding laser applications. coating process to reach highest thin films quality. It is therefore preferred for demanding laser applications.

Moreover, the coating systems made by Cutting Edge Coatings are equipped with most advanced devices for broad-band optical monitoring (BBOM). Hereby, customers from thin film industry will be enabled to offer and produce coatings with superior quality characteristic, maximum flexibility and high value creation.
