Iridium Sputtering Target Safety Data Sheet



Iridium Sputtering Target Description

IridiumIridium sputtering target has the same properties as Iridium metal. Iridium is a rare, hard, lustrous, brittle, very dense platinum-like metal. Chemically it is almost as unreactive as gold. It is the most corrosion-resistant metal known and it resists attack by any acid. Iridium is generally credited with being the second densest element (after osmium) based on measured density, although calculations involving the space lattices of the elements show that iridium is denser. Iridium is a rare metal belonging to the platinum group of elements on the Periodic Table.

Iridium Sputtering Target Application

Iridium sputter targets are used for thin film deposition, typically for fuel cell, decoration, semiconductor, display, LED and photovoltaic devices, glass coating, etc. Other applications of iridium include:

– A hardening agent for the special alloy.
– Alloyed with osmium, which is used for bearing compass and tipping pens.
– Iridium crucibles.
– Iridium film, which is used as a protective film or heavy-duty electrical contacts.
– The international standard kilogram, which is an alloy of 90% platinum and 10% iridium.
– Fuel cell.
