The residual gases in the vacuum equipment during the sputtering process determines the oxygen content of copper-gallium precursor layers much more than the target material. This result of a research project undertaken by our coating experts is important for the manufacture of CIGS thin-film solar cells. The detailed results were presented as a poster contribution at this year's E... Read more...More Product Announcements from PLANSEE SE
WHITE PAPER: Ensuring Pristine Microbumps in Dimensional Devices. Moore’s Law, the driving force of the semiconductor industry for the last 60 years, is beginning to slow. While advanced transistor technologies such as FinFET are facilitating the downward gate length trend, the ITRS has recognized the importance of so-called "dimensional devices Read more...More Product Announcements from Indium Corporation
With skyrocketing fossil fuel energy prices, solar power energy is booming as an alternative source of renewable energy. Supplying several markets, Hitachi Metals is a leading manufacturer of target materials for CIGS Photovoltaic Cells (Mo and CuGa).

Molybdenum coatings are the crucial components of the thin-film transistors used in TFT-LCD screens. These provide instantaneous control of the individual image dots (pixels) and consequently ensure particularly sharp image quality. Read more...More Product Announcements from PLANSEE SE
Since the NanoBond®process is almost instantaneous, fluxes are not used. (They just don’t have enough time to heat up to their activation temperature and remove oxides.) So, because this is a fluxless soldering application, surface choice and preparation become very important. Read this article in the series on Nanofoil® thin film heat source Read more...More Product Announcements from Indium Corporation
Elmet has been providing Molybdenum and Tungsten sputtering targets to numerous industries for many applications for decades. Our high quality targets are used in many of the most challenging industries including Flat Panel Display (FPD), semiconductor (memory and logic), and Thin-Film Photovoltaic (TFPV). Our vertically integrated process is designed to ensure the highest quality materi... Read more...More Product Announcements from Elmet Technologies, Inc.
Indium Corporation's OnSpec CIG alloy sputtering targets, made from copper (Cu), indium (In), and gallium (Ga), are used to produce high-efficiency CIGS (Cu/In/Ga/di-selenide) solar cells. CIG targets offer tight control of the final solar cell composition. This is due to our unique process that results in a fully alloyed and completely homogenous CIG alloy Read more...More Product Announcements from Indium Corporation
