We are the only company to date offering both outsourced and manufacturing services and state-of-the-art equipment. Thanks to a visionary outlook, IBS maintains its lead, whether with the PULSION® machine through its success during tests at CEA-LETI and at the premises of a world leader in microelectronics, or with the IMC™ system, whose sales growth give it a key role in advanced technologies such as sensors or silicon carbide power electronics. IBS’s international presence supports the agile deployment of expertise and local support, necessary to make it a valuable ally for its customers.

IBS VISION

The emergence of nanotechnology has pushed ion implantation to be a critical enabling engineering technique for materials at the nanoscale. Implantation is required to enable the development of innovative processes in these advanced technical areas.

The emerging markets of The Internet of Things, autonomous vehicles, smart homes, and the current challenges relating to the storage and transport of data, all drive systematic and complex microelectronics requirements.

From production to end users, the efficient management of electrical energy is at the heart of the energy transition. Ion implantation plays a role in the development of new components used throughout the energy efficiency chain. This ranges from an increasing the efficiency of photovoltaic cells, improving the performance of power transistors used in converters and modifying materials for storage batteries.

With these rapidly evolving technologies, manufacturers must constantly develop new components and advance their core technologies. As the result of thirty years of expertise and continuous research towards innovation, IBS gives its customers the agility they need. Our implant services division, along with IMC™ and PULSION® implant systems, meet these new challenges with comprehensive solutions. Whether it is offering new species to implant, designing processes and equipment to keep up with the technological diversification in nanoelectronics, mastering new materials such as silicon carbide in power electronics or the manufacture of high-performance solar cells, IBS has the expertise and capability to be your best partner.

IBS, A GLOBAL APPROACH

Developing innovative processes in a wide variety of implant areas calls for a global approach. IBS has built an organization capable of responding with experts at every link on the value chain of its core business: ion implantation.

Implant services supporting research institutions, small volumes production of new processes, maintenance and retrofitting of equipments, sales of spare parts and the manufacturing of cutting-edge equipment dedicated to high-tech: all drive the IBS ecosystem to provide its clients the best in ion implantation.

IBS capabilities are also enhanced through the teams’ extended expertise, which enables the company to develop new expertise such as in the field of energy efficiency. IBS proves its value as a partner by producing essential process tools and technology for energy independence and CO2 reduction, such as manufacturing systems for solar panels, batteries and power components.

IBS’s organization also meets the requirements of globalization in emerging markets. With deployment through offices abroad, IBS offers its clients local response and support.

  • GARANTEE & QUALITY

    IBS obtained ISO 9001 certification in July 2006 for ion implantation subcontracting and manufacture of electronic components, which has been extended to maintenance of ion implanter sub-assemblies in 2015. Beyond this certification stands the IBS team’s entire company culture, founded on quality.

    Since the results of ion implantation cannot be verified without destructive testing, our upstream quality assurance program is indispensable to guarantee each operation. For thirty years IBS has established all of the safeguards necessary to ensure the conditions for success: regular inspection of the hardware systems, tests on its own products to gather quality statistics and the best training for its teams. This proactive approach reflects IBS’s commitment and makes the company a trusted ally for its clients.

    IBS guarantees the safety of the environment and participates in its protection.
