The right solution for every applicationProducts
Sputtering targets for a wide variety of coating applications, structural components meeting the highest standards of purity, geometries and dimensional stability, optical elements made of high-purity, monocrystalline, optical-grade silicon: FST offers you the right products for your applications – get to know our entire range now.
Sputtering targets made of mono- and multicrystalline silicon can be used to apply functional, "configurable" silicon layers to various materials. The more high-grade these coatings are to be, the more important the quality of the sputtering targets: Material purity and manufacturing quality are key success factors. At the same time, a specifically tailored combination of target material, doping and resistivity, as well as back plate / heat sink plays a central role – together with the appropriate bonding process and the shape and size of the entire target.read more
Expertise that takes you further: We are experts in the decisive manufacturing processes for structural components made of hard, brittle materials, so we can create highly individual parts with complex geometries. Correspondingly high demands are placed on the finishing quality of the components. In the manufacturing of structural components, we process not only silicon and quartz glass, but also materials provided by the customer, such as germanium, silicon carbide, oxide ceramics, borosilicate glass, piezoelectric materials, ferrites and magnetic materials, as well as nitrides and borides. Depending on the application, this gives you reliable components with, for example, high resistance to heat, a wide variety of process atmospheres or certain physical properties.read more
Silicon optical components
Optical elements made of high-purity, monocrystalline silicon are used in a wide range of industrial and scientific sectors. Optical-grade blanks are used, for example, to produce lenses, prisms, mirrors and other sophisticated optical components. Due to the relatively low density of the material, optical components made of silicon are particularly suitable for weight-sensitive applications. Our silicon optical blanks, manufactured drawing on our vast experience, are suitable for applications in the IR-spectrum range. These include optics and optoelectronics, laser technology, aerospace, medical technology and research and development.read more
PVD coating materials (Si, SiO₂)
For your special PVD coatings, we offer both high-purity elemental silicon (Si) – in cut or crushed form – and silica as high-purity quartz (SiO₂), crushed and with amorphous or crystalline structure. Cut or crushed, mono- or multicrystalline: High-purity silicon (Si) is applied in various forms, especially in industry. It is used to coat a wide variety of materials in order to optimise their material properties and produce functional layers. It features primarily in photovoltaics, optics and optoelectronics, semiconductor technology, sheet-glass production and the entire spectrum of research and development.read more
