Sputtering is a process where energetic ions eject atoms from a solid target material. This process is used commonly for thin film deposition. The two largest industries which utilize sputtering technology are the semiconductor industry in the production of computer memory chips and the optical coatings industry for the production of antireflective coatings. In addition to tantalum, Admat also supplies sputtering targets in niobium, titanium, tungsten, molybdenum, hafnium, silicon and some of their oxides. All our products are engineered specifically to perform reliably in thin film depositions. Our manufacturing process ensures the target’s grain and texture are free from banding. We offer a wide selection of purities and shapes.
