Does anyone know of a company in the US that can apply a thin film of tin dioxide (SnO2 coating) to glass substrate such as a microscopy slide?
In Europe they coat beer bottles with tin dioxide. The technology is simple and inexpensive. The result is nicer look of the bottle and scratch resistance.
In BioElectroSpec we use transparent conducting electrodes for biosensor studies. We deposit tin dioxide coatings on our quartz slides (30 mm X 40 mm X 1 mm) and use them for investigation biomolecular interactions. Electrical quality of our SnO2 coatings is OK, however, the thickness is not uniform.
I suspect that there is industry for tin dioxide coatings in the USA. Does anyone know about it? All suggestions are appreciated!
