Platinum Sputtering Targets
Platinum is a radiant, silvery-white metal and considered a valuable element of the Periodic table. Its molecular weight is 195.08 and a melting point of 1,772°C. The density of Platinum is 21.4 g/cc and the heat of vaporization is 122 K-Cal/gm atom at 3827°C. Its properties are malleable, dense, ductile, and corrosion resistant in air. The application of Platinum in manufacturing purposes of semiconductors, fuel cells, and batteries happens when it is evaporated under vacuum The use of Platinum in jewelry, laboratory instruments, and optical coatings is very common. Commercially, it is used in vehicles as a catalytic converter. Sputtering targets of platinum are made with great care and caution to provide the highest possible density with 99.9 % purity. They are ultra-thin sheets formed by depositions of ionic bombardment. Each target is available in several sizes and shapes such as discs, granules, powder, and rod, etc to meet your requirements.
