Epner technology was in the beginning of microwave itself. That was in 1938 when we were tasked with silver and gold plating the earliest “plumbing” as the wave guides and co-ax lines were then called, for systems that were being sent to England as an early warning system for the incoming German bombers during the Battle of Britain.

With the advent of diode pumped technology, Epner’s main Yag business is refurbishment (including the electroformed Quantronix cavity) of existing cavities while moving on to tubular chambers pumped by diode lasers through a side wall slot. Laser Gold was named because of its near universal acceptance as the most efficient and durable YAG Laser Pump Cavity coating. ETI provides solderable gold plating for diode pumped heat sinks.

Epi Reactors, Rapid Thermal Heaters and Memory Disk Heaters all have been improved by re-plating with Laser Gold. ETI both fabricates from scratch or re-plates your existing reflectors on the AMT, ASM, Intevac and Moore Technology heater systems. A patented improvement in the reflector increased shape for EPI reactors has produced the ability to guarantee lamp life for one year with uniformity at the wafer.
