Materials Science Inc., San Diego CA, USA
Materials Science, Inc. was established in 1989 and incorporated in 1992. The company specializes in magnetron sputter deposition. We manufacture and distribute products from multiple locations throughout the United States.
Materials Science, Inc. endeavors to understand each customer’s needs and respond appropriately. Our team of creative scientists, engineers, software developers, technicians, coating experts and support staff each possesses decades of experience, both in designing and building critical technology components and similarly with systems used in high volume industrial production. They have implemented systems for magnetic and optical storage media, semiconductor production, compound semiconductor devices, precision optics, decorative coatings, functional and wear purposes, flexible substrates, MEMS devices, flat panel displays, telecommunication devices, fiber optics and other applications.
To shorten product development cycles, we design and model most of our products by CAD before prototype units are built. We often use 3D solids modeling and FEA software to perform magnetic, thermal, fluid and stress analysis. These tools allow us to rapidly design, prototype, test and help our customer put into production new magnetron sputtering sources designed for specific needs.
Materials Science, Inc. has several prototyping test systems. Products are characterized and optimized as appropriate. During prototype testing, we also monitor and control vacuum levels, argon and reactive gas flow, current, voltage and power levels, incoming/outgoing water temperature, flow and pressure and other information germane to a device and/or application.
Our laboratory also allows real world checks on how easy the companys products are to service, maintain, assemble and integrate into a system.
