Proudly serving the US Government since 2009
Applied Beams was founded to serve the needs of advanced device manufacturers and materials researchers. Having been awarded contracts with the Army Research Laboratory (ARL), Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), Defense Microelectronics Activity (DMEA) and the General Services Administration (GSA), and working with several National Laboratories, we understand the processes and value of providing for our government.
We provide research, development, direct replacement consumables and high performance electron and ion beam systems which go beyond traditional capabilities found in today’s focused beam instruments.
We apply our expertise as customer oriented professionals to deliver complete focused ion beam (FIB) and scanning electron microscope (SEM) systems, utilizing field emission electron sources, plasma FIB (PFIB), and custom engineered hardware, electronics, and software control. We also offer laboratory analysis and micro-machining services with our two PFIB systems, four SEMs, and our atomic force microscope (AFM).
Our HyperFIB plasma FIB system delivers beam currents beyond any other tool on the market today, allowing for processing times which can by 50X faster than other FIB systems. Such processing times also allow micro-machining capabilities generally not possible with traditional FIB systems, and precision far better than available with laser-based micro-machining tools.
