Ion Beam Technology

Plasma Process Group, Windsor CO, USA
7330 Greendale Road, Windsor CO 80550, USA

Ion beam technology was developed at NASA in the 1960’s as a means of producing thrust on spacecraft. Ion beam sources can be used for depositing precise oxides, diamond-like carbon, and other useful coatings on optical and mechanical components.

We (Plasma Process Group) offer a wide selection of ion beam sources, power supplies, complete systems and associated hardware. Our ion beam sources can be utilized in applications ranging from research and development through production.

If you are new to ion beam technology, please have a look at the documentation section as a basic introduction about ion beam sources is provided. If you require assistance with your process, check out our applications lab.

Asahi Spectra USA, Torrance CA, USA
23505 Crenshaw Boulevard, Suite 229, Torrance, CA 90505, USA

Asahi Spectra Co. (ASC) was founded in 1970 in Tokyo, Japan by 3 engineers. ASC has been developing a vacuum deposition technology such as ion assisted deposition (IAD) and ion beam sputtering (IBS) , which achieve hard coating, excellent durability for environment (humidity, low or high temperature, thermal shock or vacuum) and stability of spectral performance. By now our optical filters have contributed in various markets such as astronomy, semiconductor, biotechnology, education and so on.
Nowadays, customer requirements are becoming more complicated as optical innovation advances, and most requirements cannot be satisfied by just optical filter technology. So we have been trying to expand our field to optical instruments based on our 40 years accumulated optical know-how as you can see how professional our optical instruments are.
Our integrated manufacturing process by both filter and instrument specialists is the most competitive advantage against “other only-optical-filter makers”.
Asahi Spectra USA Inc. was established in January, 2005 in California in order to distribute the Asahi Spectra brand in USA and all over the world. Major Customers in the US include:
California Institute of Technology
Stanford University
MIT
Harvard University
Yale University
