Sputtering Target Bonding

Metallic bonding delivers excellent thermal conductivity and is recommended for most sputtering target applications. The most effective metallic bonding is with indium and is the preferred Kamis sputtering target bonding method. Kamis uses only high purity indium for the majority of its bonding, to ensure the strongest bond between a sputtering target and a backing […]

Sputtering Targets: Depositing Thin Films

Sputtering is a unique and repeatable process and has the ability to deposit thin films from a range of materials on to different shapes and sizes of substrates. The process can be upgraded from research and development projects to manufacturing of batches involving medium to large substrate areas. In order to realize efficient momentum, transfer […]

Sputtering Targets and Sputtered Films

Sputtering is one of the most popular technologies for deposition of thin films. Although sputtering was first developed about 200 years ago, since World War II it has become increasingly important for the creation of innovative devices, becoming fundamental in sustaining the growing demand for semiconductor circuits and other electronic devices. Sputtering targets have found […]

Novel Technologies to be Developed for Thin-Film Deposition

A three-year project awarded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to develop novel technologies for depositing thin films is underway. The contract award is under DARPA’s Local Control of Materials Synthesis (LoCo) program, which is investigating non-thermal approaches for depositing thin-film coatings onto the surfaces of a variety of materials. The objective of the […]

The Vacuum Process of Thin Film Deposition

The vacuum process of thin film deposition involves the application of coatings of pure materials over the surface of varied and differing objects. The thickness of coatings or films typically possess a range of microns and angstroms and can be of single material or a layered structure of multiple materials. Using quartz crystal monitoring, there […]

Thin Film Materials

The thin film material market value will grow to $10.25 billion by 2018, at a significant CAGR from 2013 to 2018. The thin film material market is directly influenced by the growth in the end-user industries, such as photovoltaic solar cells, MEMS, electrical, and others. Owing to the increasing demand for photovoltaic solar cells from […]

Thin Film Vacuum Coating on Flat Substrates

Vision Flat is an international technology and networking event that celebrates twenty years of research and development in the field of thin-film vacuum coating on flat substrates at the Fraunhofer FEP. Representatives of leading companies, Corning Inc., Saint-Gobain Glass, Schott AG and experts in this field will highlight recent technological achievements and provide an outlook […]
