Faraday Factory Japan LLC |The company manufactures and sells superconducting wires (tapes) used in the development of nuclear fusion reactors and electric motors.

IBAD (Ion Beam Assisted Deposition)

Ion Beam Assisted Deposition method makes use of an argon ion beam directed at a certain angle to the tape's surface while growing an oxide layer. As a result, only nuclei with a strong biaxial orientation remain on the surface. This tool creates a template surface with an inplane oriented structure, which is a perfect substrate for subsequent deposition of a superconducting layer.
