Description of Ruthenium Sputtering Target

Ruthenium Ruthenium is a chemical element originated from Russia (with the Latin name Ruthenia). It was first mentioned in 1807 and observed by J. Sniadecki. The isolation was later accomplished and announced by J. Sniadecki. “Ru” is the canonical chemical symbol of ruthenium. Its atomic number in the periodic table of elements is 44 with location at Period 5 and Group 8, belonging to the d-block. The relative atomic mass of ruthenium is 101.07(2) Dalton, the number in the brackets indicating the uncertainty.
