Indium Sputtering Targets
Indium is a chemical element is a silvery-white and shiny metal that has various applications. One of the great characteristics of indium is that this chemical element does not react with oxygen at room temperature. This characteristic of indium has been applied by many industries especially aircraft industries. Indium sputtering targets make a great coating for aircraft parts to prevent them from wearing out or oxidize. Indium sputtering targets are also used to increase other metals' hardness and toughness. This coating application can be added to solders for durability purposes. Not only prevents solders from breakdown, but indium sputtering targets also used to reduce the melting point of some solders. Indium sputtering targets are also useful for optical devices. A perfect coating by using this target helps solar cells produce electrical signals through the conversion of pulses of light.
