Optimizing thin film growth

Thin film deposition equipment is in wide demand amongst academic researchers in chemistry, physics, materials science and electrical engineering, not to mention manufacturers of semiconductor devices, medical consumables, storage media, and optics parts. Thus the size of the market can vary greatly from year to year due to its strong dependence on the health of these end-use sectors. Nonetheless, technological breakthroughs have often lead to large-scale growth. To this end, Angstrom Engineering Inc has strived to remain a leader in this field by constantly improving the ease of use of their systems as well as the quality of materials produced. The project will involve developing methods and models to further automate and optimize their thin film growth.
