Thin Films for the physical and life sciences in high-technology applications.

Shelf life

We observe that the quality of the gold surface degrades with time due to some contamination. In order to slow down this process, we package the gold thin films in pure nitrogen immediately after the deposition process. This procedure allows the extension of the shelf life of the product to three to four months. All our films are freshly grown, we keep no stock of this product and we strongly recommend the use of the films in a short time scale after reception.
