Kurt J. Lesker Co. Purchases Ion Sources
The Kurt J. Lesker Co. of Clairton, Pa., has acquired the ion source family of Anatech Ltd., based in Denver, N.C., to complement its range of deposition products. Along with power supplies and accessories, the purchase includes 3-, 5- and 10-cm filamentless sources that have applications in sample cleaning, ion-assisted deposition, mild etching and surface modification. The Lesker/Anatech patented ion sources use no thermionic emitter to generate a plasma, either filament or tip, and are inert and reactive compatible. Lesker has moved design and manufacturing processes related to the acquisition to its headquarters.
