Gold Sputtering Target Safety Data Sheet



Gold Sputtering Target Description

GoldGold sputtering target has the same properties as precious metal gold (Au). Gold is a chemical element originated from the Anglo-Saxon word gold (aurum in Latin, meaning glow of sunrise). It was early used before 6000 BC and discovered by people from the Middle East. “Au” is the canonical chemical symbol of gold. Its atomic number in the periodic table of elements is 79 with a location at Period 6 and Group 11, belonging to the d-block. The relative atomic mass of gold is 196.966569(4) Dalton, the number in the brackets indicating the uncertainty.

Gold is one of the most beautiful precious metals with a lustrous, yellow luster. It is soft, dense, malleable, ductile, and an excellent conductor of heat and electricity. Deposited films of gold sputtering targets and gold evaporation materials are used as layers in the production of semiconductors, sensors, batteries, and data storage.

Gold Sputtering Target Application

The gold sputtering target is used for standard scanning electron microscopy (SEM) coating. It is utilized to cover a specimen with a thin layer of conducting material viz. gold. It is needed to prevent the charging of specimens with an electron beam in conventional SEM mode as well as to increase the signal to noise ratio.

Others: Physical vapor deposition (PVD) of thin films, laser ablation deposition (PLD), magnetron sputtering for semiconductor, display, LED and photovoltaic devices.

Gold Sputtering Target Bonding Service

Used these for classroom chemical projects and experiments. Works great.

by Paul McNamara on Gold Sputtering Target, Au

FYI: Keep the target clean before coating, so as to maintain the uniformity of the film.

by Tony Lord on Gold Sputtering Target, Au

Due to the high quality of the gold sputtering materials, the film I obtained is of extremely good uniformity! Love it! Thank you!

Satisfying customers with high-quality products is always SAM's service tenet. We are very happy that our products are helpful for your project. Thank you for your trust.

by George Smith on Gold Sputtering Target, Au

I bought the gold sputtering targets for jewelry coating. The good thing is that SAM offers different purities of the gold sputter target, so that you can purchase on your own budget. I bought a 99.999% purity au target, and the obtained gold film has a good gloss and uniformity. five stars.
