Lutetium Sputtering Target Description

LutetiumLutetium sputtering target is composed of high purity lutetium metal. Lutetium is a chemical element that originated in Paris, France (with the Roman name Lutetia). It was first mentioned in 1906 and observed by G. Urbain and C.A. von Welsbach. The isolation was later accomplished and announced by G. Urbain and C.A. von Welsbach. “Lu” is the canonical chemical symbol of lutetium. Its atomic number in the periodic table of elements is 71 with a location in Period 6 and Group 3, belonging to the d-block. The relative atomic mass of lutetium is 174.967(1) Dalton, the number in the brackets indicating the uncertainty.

Lutetium Sputtering Target Applications

The lutetium 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.

Lutetium also has the following applications:

  • Used as a catalyst for polymerization/hydrogenation processes and also for cracking hydrocarbons
  • Used in detectors of positron emission topography that detects the cellular activity of the body
  • Used in cancer treatment
  • Used in determining the age of meteorites
