AJA International, Inc. (est. 1989) began as a supplier of innovative thin film, vacuum and microwave products.  In 1991 the company introduced the first commercial, con-focal, sputter tool with a rotating substrate and magnetron heads which could be tilted without breaking vacuum.  This innovation yielded extremely uniform depositions of single layers, multi-layers and alloys and has become the benchmark by which other R&D sputtering systems are measured.   AJA International is a leading supplier of R&D and batch coating systems for:

Thin Film Deposition Systems
Sputter Deposition Systems
Evaporation Coating Systems
Ion Milling Systems
Multi-Technique Systems
Sputtering Sources
Substrate Holders/Heaters
RF/DC Power Supplies
Microwave Power Supplies
