Description of Rhenium Sputtering Target

Rhenium Rhenium is a chemical element originated from Rhine, a river that flows from Grisons in the eastern Swiss Alps to the North Sea coast in the Netherlands (with the Latin name Rhenia). It was first mentioned in 1908 and observed by M. Ogawa. The isolation was later accomplished and announced by M. Ogawa. “Re” is the canonical chemical symbol of rhenium. Its atomic number in the periodic table of elements is 75 with location at Period 6 and Group 7, belonging to the d-block. The relative atomic mass of rhenium is 186.207(1) Dalton, the number in the brackets indicating the uncertainty.

Application of Rhenium Sputtering Target

  • Rhenium is included in high-temperature superalloys used for manufacturing jet engine parts.
  • Rhenium is added to nickel-based super alloys to improve creep strength of the alloys.
  • Rhenium 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.
  • Rhenium filaments exhibit a higher stability, and hence they can be used in photoflash lamps, ion gauges and mass spectrometers.
  • Rhenium radioactive isotopes are used for treating liver and pancreatic cancer where it is delivered through a bacterial host.


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