About the PiezoFlare 1200

The PiezoFlare 1200 is a revolutionary manufacturing technology to produce chips with precise actuation functionality for various new applications like, inkjet printheads, pico projectors, RF MEMS and various sensing applications. The PiezoFlare 1200 is an automated deposition system for PZT thin films on 6" or 8" wafers, based on pulsed laser deposition. The technology uses a laser to create a plasma of the to be deposited material, this has several significant advantages for the deposition of the new generation materials. The fully automated tool offers high-yield piezo performance and flexibility for customized PZT compositions and can also be used for other More than Moore materials.
