Intevac Announces Agreement to Deliver its New VERTEX Spectra™ System to Leading Display Cover Glass Manufacturer
“After driving our internal strategy to place seed VERTEX assets into
the field for several quarters, we are very pleased to announce that our
newest system, the VERTEX Spectra, is now scheduled to be installed at a
leading display cover glass manufacturer,” commented
Equipped with Intevac’s proprietary Ion Beam Assisted Deposition (IBAD) and Ion Beam Etching (IBE) technologies, the VERTEX Spectra deposits decorative coatings with unique patterning effects for smartphone glass back covers. The IBAD technology can also be used to deposit hard optical anti-reflective (AR) coatings that are highly resistant to scratching and abrasion.
