Lithium Cobalt Oxide Sputtering Targets and Applications

Lithium Cobalt Oxide (LiCoO2) Sputtering Targets (Size:2'' ,Thickness:0.125'' , Purity: 99.9%), sometimes called lithium cobaltate or lithium cobaltite, is a chemical compound with formula LiCoO2. Lithium cobalt oxide is a dark blue or bluish-gray crystalline solid, and is commonly used in the positive electrodes of lithium-ion batteries.

Lithium ion batteries have found utility in various applications, including automobiles, such as hybrid and electric vehicles. The emergence of lithium (Li) ion batteries can be attributed to several of its bulk properties, including high power density, low self-discharge rate and favorable charge-discharge cycle performance. The bulk properties affect the battery capacity and use life. Key variables which can affect the performance of the bulk properties include Li-ion diffusivity. As a result, Li-ion battery development has primarily focused on Li-containing materials having suitable Li-ion diffusivity. One of the material of interest is lithium cobalt oxide. Lithium Cobalt Oxide (LiCoO2) Sputtering Targets has been determined to exhibit superior Li-ion diffusivity. As a result, lithium cobalt oxide has emerged as the preferred precursor material for new lithium bulk battery applications within the electronics industry.

The suitability of lithium cobalt oxide for use in battery technology also extends to thin film lithium battery applications. The required thin film lithium can be generally deposited by conventional sputtering target techniques, whereby Lithium Cobalt Oxide (LiCoO2) Sputtering Targets assembly, defined as the lithium cobalt oxide sputtering target bonded to a backing plate, can be used to deposit the required thin film lithium. With regards to sputtering targets to produce Li thin films, a D.C. (direct current) magnetron sputter system can be employed.
