PlasmaChem GmbH was founded 1993 in Mainz. In 2005 the company moved from Mainz to Berlin and is now located in the district Adlershof – the “City of Science and Media” — Germany´s leading science and technology park with more than 800 technology oriented companies, 6 institutes of Humboldt University and 11 non-university affiliated research institutes.
The main business field of PlasmaChem concerns nano-materials, detonation-, vacuum-, plasma- and ultra-thin film technologies and their biomedical and technical applications.
PlasmaChem offers new products for research and industry: Nanopowders (NanoDiamonds, NanoCeramics, NanoMetals and composite Nano-particles. In 2005 PlasmaChem has launched the first-in-the-world General Catalogue of Nanomaterials and related products.
Plasmachem performs chemical and low temperature plasma modification of nanopowders with the purpose of functionalization of nano-particle’s surface assisted by new plasma-chemical methods developed by PlasmaChem for ultra-dispersed materials. This approach leads to a new family of industrial nano-products with improved and tailor-made properties.
Along with advanced nano-particles PlasmaChem developed novel ready-to-use industrial nano-products like nano-abrasives, additives to engine oils and composite nano-suspensions for electroplating and electroless plating of metals.

We put great emphasis on continuously developing and further improving our well-established products like the Pointprobe® series.
The AFM probes of the Pointprobe series are the most widely used and best known AFM probes worldwide. The product series comprises scanning probes for the widest range of applications.
The Pointprobe AFM probes are available with different coatings like Platinum-Iridium (PtIr5), Magnetic, Diamond or Gold. Additionally we offer special tip versions like our SuperSharpSilicon for high resolution imaging or High Aspect Ratio Tips for deep trench measurements.
Our Arrow series features standard AFM tips for contact, non-contact and force modulation mode that have a tetrahedral tip. The unique Arrow shape of the cantilever allows easy positioning of the tip on the area of interest. Furthermore the Arrow series also includes a range of tipless cantilevers and cantilever arrays.
The Ultra-Short Cantilevers series combines very small cantilevers capable of resonating in the MHz regime and a very sharp and wear resistant tip and is dedicated to High-Speed AFM (HS-AFM). The Ultra-Short Cantilevers series consists of six different types of probes which cover the complete range of high speed scanning applications, from non-contact mode to contact mode, from measurements in air to measurements in liquid
The Pyrex-Nitride series combines silicon nitride cantilevers and tips with the proven glass chip concept. The Pyrex-Nitride series has been designed for a great variety of imaging techniques like in air and liquid. Three different types of Pyrex-Nitride Probes are currently available: AFM probes with rectangular cantilevers, AFM probes with triangular cantilevers and AFM probes with tipless triangular cantilevers.
Special AFM Probes can be designed and manufactured upon customer’s request.
Advanced Abrasives provides a broad product portfolio that includes superabrasives, conventional abrasives and related product categories. From our superabrasive category we provide wet and dry diamond powders, compounds and slurries as well as cubic boron nitride powders slurries and compounds. These superabrasives are micronized and processed using a variety of methods including our proprietary “Mesh to Micron” process to satisfy a diverse range of applications worldwide.

Our IOPLAS-IITM ion-assisted deposition processes give us the flexibility to apply coatings at low temperatures for plastic fibers and other delicate substrates. We can also generate coatings with greater packing densities to handle very high laser damage thresholds. To add to these capabilities, Cascade Optical has also developed manufacturing processes to apply our coatings to; plastics, polymers, semi-conductors, lenses, mirrors, crystals, metals (even diamond-turned surfaces), and ceramics.
We offer quality products with high yields to lower our production costs. Additionally, we offer very short lead times: typically one to two weeks. Our engineering department can provide you with our design-for-manufacture expertise. In most cases we can get you on the right track in just one or two phone calls.
We do a good deal of innovative coating development to support our relationships with the research community of National Labs, Universities, and NASA related organizations.
