Solutions in the field of thin films and surface technology
As an R&D services center the Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films IST offers research and development into new materials, technologies, processes and installations in one basket - from concept to product.
Our skills and capabilities cover not only the pretreatment, coating and modification of surfaces but also process development, simulation, analysis and quality assurance. An important objective of our work will always be to transfer our developments into industrial application for our clients and partners.
In solving our tasks we deploy not only low-pressure and atmospheric-pressure plasma processes but also hot-filament CVD processes and electroplating.
