Cobalt Sputtering Target Description


Cobalt sputtering targets possess the same properties as pure metal cobalt. Cobalt is a chemical element that derives its name from the German word ‘kobald’, which means goblin. The element was initially mentioned in 1732 and first observed by G. Brandt. Cobalt is represented by the canonical symbol “Co” in the periodic table, where it has an atomic number of 27, resides in Period 4 and Group 9, and belongs to the d-block. The relative atomic mass of cobalt is 58.933195(5) Dalton, with the number in brackets indicating the uncertainty.

Cobalt finds wide applications as a blue pigment in paint, glass, and jewelry. It’s often alloyed with other metals for use in engine parts and cutting tools. Cobalt sputtering targets are popular in two key vacuum applications: as a ferromagnetic layer in the production of magnetic storage media and as a transitional layer in battery fabrication.

Cobalt Sputtering Target Application

Cobalt sputtering targets have several applications in different industries, including:

  • Fusible alloys
  • Cosmetics and pigments
  • Low melting solders
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Replacement of lead
  • Synthetic fibers
  • Shots and shotguns

These targets enable the deposition of cobalt thin films, which are used in a wide range of applications. For instance, cobalt-based fusible alloys are used as temperature indicators and safety devices. Cobalt pigments are used in the production of blues and greens for ceramics, glass, and paints. Low melting solders containing cobalt are used in the fabrication of electronic devices. In the pharmaceutical industry, cobalt complexes are used as radiopharmaceuticals in diagnostic imaging. Cobalt can also replace lead in various applications to reduce toxicity risks. Additionally, cobalt-containing synthetic fibers are used in the manufacture of textiles, while shots and shotguns made of cobalt alloys offer superior hardness and wear resistance compared to traditional alloys.

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