Product Details

Product Name

Lutetium Metal/ Sputtering Target

Product Description

Lutetium metal is a silver-gray active metal with a molecular formula of Lu. The powder is easily self-igniting in the air and easily soluble in acid, insoluble in water.  After exposure to oxygen in the air, it is very easy to exotherm into oxidized rare earth, The package is sealed and must not be in contact with air. It should be stored separately from oxidants, acids, halogens, and food chemicals. Avoid mixing.

1. An important way to make thin-film material is sputtering—a new way of physical vapor deposition (PVD). The thin-film made by target is characterized by high density and good adhesiveness. As the magnetron sputtering techniques being widely applied, the high pure metal and alloy targets are in great need. Being with high melting point, elasticity, low coefficient of thermal expansion, resistivity and fine heat stability, pure tungsten and tungsten alloy targets are widely used in semiconductor integrated circuit, two-dimensional display, solar photovoltaic, X ray tube and surface engineering.
2.It can work with both older sputtering devises as well as the latest process equipments, such as large area coating for solar energy or fuel cells and flip-chip applications.

Proudct Features
1. Tungsten sputtering target adopts best demonstrated techniques including X-ray fluorescence (XRF), glow discharge mass spectrometry (GDMS), and inductively coupled plasma (ICP); 
2. Tungsten target from Achemetal is provided with high purity up to 99.97%, density 18.8-19g/cm3, homogeneous organization structure and fine grain;
3. Our tungsten sputtering target has been approved by the ASTM B 760-2007 and GB 3875-2006.
