Sputtering deposition, or sputter coating, is one of the physical vapor deposition technology, whereby sputtering target particles are ejected from a solid sputtering material due to the bombardment of the target by energetic particles. It is an electronic process that deposits thin films of metals or other materials onto a variety of surfaces.
Our ISO 9001 certified Materials Division stocks a vast assortment of high-purity sputtering target materials. We offer pure elements, compounds, alloys, ceramics, intermetallics, and mixtures for both R&D and Production applications. Each sputtering target ships complete with a Certificate of Analysis and SDS. We also provide in-house sputter target bonding and precious metals reclamation services, saving you both time and money.
SAM offers a wide range of sputtering materials for the vacuum deposition industry. Our materials are of various purities, ranging from 99.9% to 99.9999%. Available forms include Discs, Plates, Column Targets, Step Targets, and Custom-made.
Metal sputtering targets are usually made from highly pure metals. They are the most widely used and fundamental coating materials for other sputter deposition technology.
Alloy sputtering targets are materials composed of one metal and other metals or non-metals while still showing the some metallic characteristics.
Common oxide ceramics sputtering targets of this type involve aluminum oxide (Al2O3), magnesium oxide (MgO), beryllium oxide (BeO), zirconium oxide (ZrO2).
Silicon nitrides (Si3N4) feature an excellent combination of material properties. They are nearly as light as silicon carbide (SiC).
Stanford Advanced Materials manufactures & supplies silicide Ceramic sputtering materials in various sizes and shapes.
