Public Profile

Spun out of technology developed at Stanford University and Los Alomos National Labs, iBeam Materials, Inc. (iBeam) develops and produces crystalline aligned templates for deposition of functional epitaxial coatings, such as superconductors and semiconductors. Utilizing ion-beam-assisted deposition (IBAD) texturing, iBeam makes high-quality IBAD textured substrates on metal tapes and wafers for customers' R&D needs. • Crystal-aligned MgO coatings on metal, glass, ceramic, and polymer substrates • Utilized for epitaxial deposition of superconductors (copper oxide or iron-based) and other functional materials. Crystalline-aligned coatings are deposited on substrates such as glass, flexible metal or plastic foils. They can be used as templates for epitaxial growth of high-performance single-crystal films, such as superconductors or semiconductors, eliminating the need for single-crystal substrates. Significantly less expensive, these materials can be produced in much larger areas and are more versatile compared to single-crystal substrates. Ion beam-assisted deposition is used to induce alignment in the films that are only a few nanometers thi
