Angstrom Sciences Celebrates its 20th Anniversary

Angstrom Sciences, Inc. celebrates its 20th Anniversary in 2008. The company was founded in June, 1988 near Pittsburgh, PA by current President, Mark A. Bernick. Angstrom Sciences has since grown into a worldwide leader in the design, development, and manufacturing of thin film deposition magnetron sputtering cathodes - a technology utilized in advanced coating industries such as aerospace and defense, architectural glass, display, semiconductor, and solar, among others.

The company holds several patents on the technical and structural features of its magnetron sputtering cathodes, which provide built-in customization capabilities, such as custom-profiled magnets arrays, adjustable target clamps, and turbulent water flow. Over time, the company’s product focus has expanded a defined product portfolio into the broadest range of specialized, high-technology sputtering cathode designs and magnet array options available.

Concurrent with the expansion of its product offerings, the physical structure of the company has also grown from its original office-setting into an 18,000 square foot facility complete with design staff, sales, research and development lab, manufacturing facility, assembly and quality control departments. The company currently employs more than 35 full-time staff members along with a network of more than 30 vacuum-specialized representatives and distributors from around the world.

Angstrom Sciences is the world leader in magnetron technology used to produce thin films through the "sputtering"process. Sputtering is used to manufacture advanced products, such as CDs/DVDs, energy efficient architectural glass, OLED technology, solar panels, flat panel displays, and microelectronic devices. The company has a worldwide business presence and is headquartered in Duquesne, PA.
