IJ Research offers a variety of thick film pastes of conductive or resistive nature applied via screen printing or air gun spray. We use many of the commercial thick film pastes fired between 550°C and 950°C. Truly hermetic metallization (MT, HT and UHT) needs to fire between 800°C to 1,950°C in a controlled atmosphere.
IJ Research has the capability of physical vapor deposition (PVD) by both sputtering and vacuum evaporation. We also can apply thin and thick films on one assembly as necessary.
IJ Research offers a variety of coatings to improve transmission and other optical properties per the customer’s requirement. Alongside typical CaF2 and MgF2 anti-reflective (AR) coatings, we also offer a high temperature, durable AR coating able to withstand 1000C temperature exposure in air.
