Description of Nickel Sputtering Target

NickelNickel is a chemical element originated from the shortened of the German ‘kupfernickel’ meaning either devil’s copper or St. Nicholas’s copper. It was first mentioned in 1751 and observed by F. Cronstedt. The isolation was later accomplished and announced by F. Cronstedt. “Ni” is the canonical chemical symbol of nickel. Its atomic number in the periodic table of elements is 28 with location at Period 4 and Group 10, belonging to the d-block. The relative atomic mass of nickel is 58.6934(2) Dalton, the number in the brackets indicating the uncertainty.

Application of Nickel Sputtering Target

The Nickel 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.

Other applications of Nickel are:

  • Used as alloying elements in stainless steel, alloy steel, non-ferrous metals and other corrosion resistant alloys
  • As a catalyst for hydrogenated vegetable oils.
  • Ceramic manufacturing.
  • AlNiCo magnets.
  • Accumulators, such as nickel-cadmium and nickel-metal hydride batteries. This battery is rechargeable and used in mobile phones, personal stereo devices, and more.
  • High-purity nickel is used in electronic and aerospace applications, chemical and food processing equipment, anodes and cathodes, caustic evaporators and heat shields.

I bought these for chemistry class to do some film coating experiments with. They function properly for what we use them for.
