Company profile

Thin film Technological Service (TTS) is a small company located in Prague (Czech Republic) that brings you more than 50 years of experience in the field of design and deposition of thin films for microelectronics, optics and other applications. Founded in 1992, it has its roots in the research and development community for the electronics industry in Czechoslovakia. It´s founders have been involved in R&D for electrotechnology from discreet components through hybrid circuits to Silicon and GaAs based VLSI circuits while working for Vacuum Laboratories and Microelectronic Division of the former TESLA – VUST Research Institute of Radio Communications in Prague.

The backbone of our business is PVD deposition of thin films by the technology of magnetron sputtering which is complemented by ion etching and photolithographic patterning of films. We can deposit a wide range of metallic and non-metallic materials films in both large and small experimental volumes of production and we are happy to offer our expertise for the solution of your thin film problems. We are specialists for high-quality multilayer metallization for soldering and wire bonding. Our thin films are parts of products that find their use in electronics and optics and all kinds of industries including automotive, aerospace, chemical and power industries.

Other our fields of activity – production of a thin film humidity sensors HAL and design, development and production of coatings for space applications – also originated in thin film technology. HAL sensors for trace moisture detection are ones of the most sensitive thin film humidity sensors in the world and are able to detect moisture down to -100 °C DP (approx. 10 water molecules in billion particles). Together with our partners, we can offer you custom-tailored solutions for humidity measurement.

In past years we have developed coatings for radiation shielding on Cubesat panels that have been successfully tested in space. Nowadays we offer design and development of coatings for space applications and also radiation analysis that we have learned in the process.

We are a young team building on vast experiences stemming from the continuity of the company. R&D with the focus on improving our technologies and developing new ones havs always been a top priority for us. As such we are always ready to take up a challenge to provide the best technical solution for you.
