AFE Technology Coatings (AFETC) is a developer and manufacturer of thin film based optical filters and coatings for use in a variety of precision optical applications. Specialising in high performance products AFETC supplies prototypes and OEM quantities of filters and coatings to industry leaders in the following market sectors:
Defence and Aerospace, Telecommunications, Instrumentation, Laser, Medical, Displays.
Cella Energy Ltd makes safe, low-cost hydrogen storage materials. Their materials use nanostructuring to safely encapsulate hydrogen at ambient temperatures and pressures. This sidesteps the requirement for an expensive hydrogen infrastructure.
Mantis Deposition provides high quality deposition components and systems for the thin-film coating community. Our products are designed for all cutting-edge materials research (MBE, Surface Science, PVD, nanocoatings...) and pre-production coating applications.
The company develops and commercialises advanced materials and technology solutions across a range of markets including: Electronics (PCB's, plastic electronics, electromechanical devices and flat displays); Industrial specialties (specialty fibres, textiles, laminates and composites); Life sciences/health care markets (including sterile surfaces, separation media and microarrays, biomedical materials); and Low Carbon Technologies (photovoltaics, advanced lighting, fuel cells).
Spun out of Cambridge University in mid 2004 to commercialize research findings in the areas of advanced nano-enabled materials, specifically in the area of carbon nanotube materials and their applications.
