Lanthanum Sputtering Target Description


The lanthanum sputtering target is a solid target composed of high purity lanthanum metal. Lanthanum is a chemical element with the symbol La and atomic number 57. Lanthanum is a soft, malleable and silvery-white metal. It is one of the most reactive rare earth elements. It can be utilized to make special optical glasses and can also be utilized to make steel more malleable. Besides, lanthanum is helpful in wastewater treatment and oil refining. Scientists have given the name “super calcium” to Lanthanum due to its application to photoconversion film.

Lanthanum Sputtering Target Application

The lanthanum sputtering target is used for thin film deposition, decoration, semiconductor, display, LED and photovoltaic devices, functional coating as nicely as other optical information storage space industry, glass coating industry like car glass and architectural glass, optical communication, etc.

Major applications of lanthanum include:

  • An alloying agent for steels and cast irons
  • Hybrid car batteries
  • In cigarette lighter flints in the form of Mischmetal (an alloy primarily consisting of cerium and lanthanum)
  • Carbon arc lighting used in mation pictures, studio lighting and projection

Handling Notes

1. No bonding service is presently available for the lanthanum sputtering targets. 2. La sputtering target has high chemical activity when exposed to the environment. Oil packaging and clean procedure are required to prevent it from chemical reactions.


Our lanthanum sputter targets are carefully handled to prevent damage during storage and transportation and to preserve the quality of our products in their original condition.
