Description of Gadolinium Sputtering Target

GadoliniumGadolinium is a chemical element originated from Johan Gadolin, chemist, physicist and mineralogist. It was first mentioned in 1880 and observed by J. C. G. de Marignac. The isolation was later accomplished and announced by F. L. de Boisbaudran. “Gd” is the canonical chemical symbol of gadolinium. Its atomic number in the periodic table of elements is 64 with location at Period 6 and Group 3, belonging to the f-block. The relative atomic mass of gadolinium is 157.25(3) Dalton, the number in the brackets indicating the uncertainty.

Application of Gadolinium Sputtering Target

  • Gadolinium can be used for making gadolinium yttrium garnets in superconducting and microwave applications.
  • Gadolinium can also be used as a magnetic component for sensing both hot and cold variations.
  • Gadolinium compounds are used for producing phosphors for color TV tubes. It is used as an alloying element for better workability and improved resistance to high-temperature oxidation in chromium, iron, and their associated alloys.
  • Gadolinium ethyl sulfate has very low noise properties and can be used to mimic the performance of high-frequency amplifiers, like the maser.

Handling Notes

1. No bonding service is presently available for this material. 2. This material has high chemical activity when exposed to the environment. Oil packaging and clean procedure are required to prevent it from chemical reactions.


The gadolinium sputtering target is clearly tagged and labeled externally to ensure efficient identification and quality control. Great care is taken to avoid any damage which might be caused during storage or transportation.
