Telemark Low Pressure Ion Sources Consistently Produce the Highest Index TiO 2 Films at Ambient Temperatures

TiO 2 is a very popular material for interference coatings and is used heavily across our industry. The ability to push the index of TiO 2 up should be the goal of all coating operations using this material. Increasing the index affords; less layers to achieve better film properties, faster turn times for high layer count stacks and higher profitability.
