Bismuth Oxide Sputtering Targets
Bismuth oxide is considered as the most important compound in bismuth. It is mainly used by scientists for various applications in medical industries. Bismuth oxide has 2 forms that are often used by scientists, nanoparticles or nanopowder and thin-film forms. This compound has a semiconductive, high refractive index, high photoconductivity. Bismuth oxide also is known for its high sensitivity to ultraviolet radiation for imaging cancers using thin films. Bismuth oxide thin films can also be used for decomposition materials, optical coating materials, solar cells, properties in circuitry electrical components and electrochemical materials. Bismuth oxide sputtering targets makes a perfect coating for these materials. Obtaining bismuth oxide thin films can be done through chemical or physical vapor deposition. However, the nanoparticle or nanopowder form of bismuth oxide appears as a yellow powder, and it can cause serious irritation to the skin, eyes, and respiratory systems.
