COOKE VACUUM designs and manufactures a wide range of standard and custom high and ultrahigh vacuum systems intended for research and production. With five decades of experience, and thousands of units in the field, COOKE VACUUM has come to symbolize economy and versatility,
Cooke Vacuum Products was established in the late 1950’s during an exciting period of experimentation in vacuum technology, especially thin film coating and materials research. From the beginning, Cooke had to pioneer new applications and new tools for the emerging semiconductor and optical industries, and for the related research laboratories.
Over the next decades, Cooke continued to support R&D by developing pumping systems, resistance evaporation, electron-beam, sputtering, and plasma sources, often in close collaboration with customers. Vacuum environmental chambers were developed for the space industry, encapsulation and bake systems for early flat panel displays. New, and highly specialized equipment was made for the quartz crystal industry, as well as for production of printing foil, then holographic foil. We were there to make the first OLED systems, and the first glove-box processors.
Because of the emphasis on custom solutions, the company has remained relatively small, and is well-known for its ability to “engineer on demand” more than for volume production.
Thin Film Deposition: Thermal Resistance; Electron Beam; Sputter; PLD; OLED and Glove Box Systems.
Etch/Ash/Surface Treatment: Plasma Etch; Reactive Ion Etch; Surface Activation and Modification.
Test and Specials: Environmental Test; Space Simulators; Vacuum Ovens: Laser Die Attach.
Materials science is a broad field of study exploring the vast potential of solid matter in a boundless array of applications. By bringing together various scientific disciplines like chemistry, biology, and physics, materials scientists delve into the world of solid matter at the molecular level. They seek to understand the complex inner structure of a material; its various properties; how processing can change it; and what it can do.
The creativity, curiosity, technical knowledge, and persistence of materials scientists has resulted in more life-changing innovations than most of us can imagine. Powerful semiconductors, artificial joints, housing to withstand the stormiest weather — all these are the innovative work of materials scientists and their teams in the lab.
At Corning, the material of glass has captured our imagination since 1851. We’ve expanded that knowledge to include ceramics and polymers, and in so doing have become one of the world’s leading materials science innovators.
Our materials science discoveries have changed the way people communicate, learn, and enjoy life; they’ve cleaned the air and enabled new medicines. Each generation builds on the knowledge of those who have come before — and with each new discovery, more doors open, making the life-enhancing applications nearly limitless.
