Thin-film Technology

From optical thin film products to metal thin film on substrate, we can formulate thin-films on substrates such as glass, crystal, aluminum nitride and plastic by using various membrane technologies to match each customer's request. There are also various thin-film types including electrode film, conductor film, solder film, optical filter, and high reflecting coating to meet a wide range of needs. For example, in case of solder film, we customize a product with particular characteristics to melt in a way customer wants. Also as for substrate geometry, we can formulate fine patterns to three-dimensional substrates up to its four surfaces, and the technology is highly evaluated. We also have been developing thick film technology in addition to technology developments to improve performance and durability of high reflecting coating.
