Reactive Ion Basics

Definition of reactive ion technology

Reactive ion technology is closely related to the plasma ion etching technology, at least when it comes to the generation of the plasma, but because plasma ion etching and reactive ion etching are using two different mechanisms, there are a number of differences between these two processes:

Reactive ion technology applications

Based on the differences listed above, there are a number of applications where reactive ion technology outperforms plasma ion etching, as well as several applications for which plasma ion etching is not suitable at all:
