by Ethan W. on Cobalt Sputtering Target, Co

As a researcher in the materials science field, I recently purchased three pieces of 2.00" Dia. x 0.125" Thick Co target from Stanford Advanced Materials (SAM) for use in my lab. I was pleasantly surprised by how well they performed during my sputtering experiments. The targets were consistent in terms of thickness and purity, which allowed for precise deposition of the material onto my substrates. Moreover, despite repeated use, the targets remained intact and showed little to no signs of degradation or damage.

I bought these for chemistry class to do some film coating experiments with. They function properly for what we use them for.
