• Sputtering targets are usually rectangular or circular. However, other shapes can also be made. For example, gold (Au) sputtering targets can be made in different shapes and even oddly shaped depending on the type of thin films. In general, the heterogeneity of these sputtering targets results in a “sputtered film” that does not have the desired uniformity for most photoelectric and semiconductor applications.

  • A sputtering target is a material used to create a thin film in a process known as sputter deposition or thin film deposition. Spray and coat another material called a substrate. Sputter deposition is commonly involved in the manufacture of semiconductors and computer chips. As a result, most of the sputtering target materials are metallic […]
