Different Types of Metal Deposition

Nanostructured thin films have been instrumental in pushing the boundaries of modern electronics and technology. They form one of the cornerstones of key devices in virtually any market that comes to mind, from consumer electronics to ultra-resolution microscopy. Each of these diverse application areas is united by a need for absolute precision at the smallest possible scales. Metallic thin films may range from a few micrometres (μm) down to fractions of a nanometre (nm) in thickness, which puts a unique pressure on achieving uniform morphologies and high stability. Critical quality parameters for thin films are based mainly on the metal deposition technique. What is Metal Deposition? Metal deposition describes any method where a metallic starter material is dissolved in a solvent or evaporated under vacuum conditions then precipitated on a target substrate. Here we aim to briefly explore some of

Custom Metal Coatings from Platypus Tech

Surface science covers a multitude of chemical and physical interactions occurring at the boundary between one phase and another. Wherever a substrate is deployed, it has been engineered with some consideration for the unique dynamics occurring at its uppermost surface layers in end-use conditions. At Platypus Technologies, we provide custom metal coatings for precision surface engineering and sub-microscopic investigations.
