Metal & Dielectric Depositions
ECI deposits a wide variety of metal and dielectric materials onto glass, semiconductor, plastic, fiberoptic or metal substrates to customer specification. Take advantage of our free in-house thin film design services for a design optimized to your specifications or provide us with the coating design or film thickness you require.
ECI deposits metals including:
and dielectric materials such as:
- Silicon dioxide
- Magnesium fluoride
- Cerium fluoride
- Hafnium oxide
- Aluminum oxide
- Titanium dioxide
- Tantalum oxide
- Zirconium oxide
ECI offers several different thin film designs specifically for use as a solderable coating for glass or fiber substrates. These films are deposited at ambient temperature which makes them suitable for use on fiber ends and other temperature sensitive parts.
The perimeter of a glass fiber can be coated in preparation for soldering into a hermetic termination package. The fiber is typically received with the jacket pulled back. ECI will clean, mount and coat your fibers in the desired area.
ECI #415 can also be deposited in a frame pattern around a window that is to be soldered onto a metal package. These films have excellent adhesion to their glass substrates and have survived destructive lift-off testing. Anti-reflection coatings can be applied to improve the transmission and reduce the reflection losses of the window.
