German term or phrase: Aufdampftechniken, Beschichtungstechniken, Strukturierungsverfahren
In a DE patent concerning manufacture of fiber optic modulators, the following terms appear when discussing the manufacture of various layers in the modulator:

Beschichtungstechniken (Schleudern, Tauchen)
Strukturierungsverfahren (Plasmaätzen, Ionenstrahlätzen)

Anyone have any ideas on "schleudern" and "Strukturierungsverfahren" in this context?

Schleudern = immersion.
Tauchen = impact.
Plasmaätzen = plasma etching.
Ionenstrahlätzen = ionising radiation etching.
All processes used in semiconductor chip production.

Schleuderbeschichtung = spin coating

Schleuderbeschichtung = spin coating
Tauchbeschichtung = dip coating
You’ll find a large number of hits for both these English terms

I’d suggest a term “structuring” or “structuring technique”, possibly "structure modification".
The information in this URL might be of particular interest in your context:

Also see the following URLs (among many available) that might be useful. The first one seems to be especially relevant as it discusses the various etching processes.

HTH! Good luck.

(vapour) bonding technique, coating techniques, doping

Please see this site:

tauchen: immerse (verb) > immersion

schleudern: spin (verb) > spinning (e.g. in a centrifuge)
