Melting Point: 1064 °C
Plasmaterials, Inc. provides high purity gold and gold alloy materials for all PVD applications. These materials are available as gold sputtering targets and evaporation materials to fit all commercially available deposition tools or custom designed geometries. Gold PVD products are available in both 99.99% (4-9’s) and 99.999% (5-9’s) purity. Gold sputtering targets can be fabricated in planar, enhanced design and rotatable geometries. Evaporation materials are available as spherical shot in 1-3mm, 3-6mm and 6-8mm random size pieces, as electron beam starter sources to fit directly into the hearth or into a hearth liner as well as in pellet form to meet the requirements of researchers and production engineers alike. These materials are sold by unit weight (grams or Troy Ounces) as specified. Plasmaterials, Inc. also provides a complete gold reclamation service to purify spent targets, used electron beam charges and flake. These materials are zone refined back to the original level of purity.
Applications for PVD gold products include semiconductors, contact layers, display technology, memory devices, tribology, decorative, optical and energy storage industries just to name a few. Due to the high electrical and thermal conductivity characteristics of gold deposited thin films, new applications are being discovered on a routine basis through research and development.
