Bismuth Sputtering Target Description

BismuthBismuth sputtering target has the same properties as metal bismuth. Bismuth (Bi) is a chemical element originated from the German ‘Bisemutum’ a corruption of ‘Weisse Masse’ meaning white mass. “Bi” is the canonical chemical symbol of bismuth. Its atomic number in the periodic table of elements is 83 with location at Period 6 and Group 15, belonging to the p-block. It is the most metallic and the least abundant of the elements in the nitrogen group. Bismuth is hard, brittle, lustrous, and coarsely crystalline. It can be distinguished from all other metals by its color—gray-white with a reddish tinge. Bismuth sputter target is widely used in the aerospace, automotive lighting, OLED, and optical industries.
