The Wafer Level Coating Cell, located at Materion's facility in
Completion of the work cell is expected to finish in the third quarter of 2013 and will include a state-of-the art 3D photolithography deposition tool, semiconductor wet etch and alignment processing tools, semi-automated inspection tools, and several custom-designed high-volume 200mm coating deposition chambers. The long-range plan foresees a total of 20,000 to 40,000 wafers per year when fully built out. Initial work will be composed of multiple volume production lines along with current projects aimed at the defense, commercial infrared and consumer electronics markets.
Materion Barr Precision Optics & Thin Film Coatings provide a broad array of technologies including complex optical filters, filter arrays, lens coatings and optical thin film component assemblies. Diverse markets are composed of: commercial, defense, life sciences and medical, thermal imaging, automotive, and space, science and astronomy industries. Website: www.materion.com/barroptics
