AJA International, Inc. was founded in Scituate, Massachusetts, USA in 1989 by William Hale, MBA, BS Physics. The company was established as a supplier of innovative thin film, vacuum and microwave products.
Prior to founding AJA International, Mr. Hale developed numerous sputter systems, ECR systems, and worked extensively in RIE, PECVD, surface analysis and vacuum technology areas ranging from chemical/pharmaceutical to vacuum packaging to UHV/MBE. This experience along with a long experience in international business gave AJA International, Inc. a solid running start.
Within 2 years the company developed the popular ATC Series Sputtering Systems - the first commercial, con-focal, sputter tools with rotating substrates and in-situ tilting magnetron sputter heads. This revolutionary development yielded extremely uniform and controllable depositions of single layers, multi-layers and alloys and has become the most popular R&D sputtering system configuration on the market.
AJA sells its products directly or in cooperation with local agents. All AJA systems are installed by AJA factory personnel whenever possible and factory acceptance and training are highly recommended and welcomed. With over 900 systems and over 7,500 magnetrons shipped worldwide, AJA International, Inc. continues to discover innovative design solutions which are often copied but never equaled as the company truly remains THE CUTTING EDGE IN THIN FILM TECHNOLOGY.
