Applied MicroStructures, Inc.
Applied MicroStructures, Inc. (AMST) develops and markets specialize process equipment to address the critical technologies in the growing nano-tech / MEMS / MST / BioMEMS industries. Our Molecular Vapor Deposition (MVD) equipment family can apply a wide variety of molecular coatings on all types of materials using a simple, low cost vacuum processing technique.
Typical applications benefiting from MVD include:
- BioMEMS device where tunable surface properties for wetting or surface modification are required
- Micro-imprinting where release coatings are required
- Drug Discovery where surface coatings on materials (glass, polymers, metals, etc.) are required
- MEMS devices where surface energies can cause device failures and performance issues
- nano applications where customize films can be created using a mixed vapor process.
