PLD Targets

PVD Products provides pulsed laser deposition (PLD) targets for a wide range of applications from ferromagnetic, complex oxides, and superconducting films. Metal targets are offered in various purity levels to suit your specific requirements, with the minimum purity of 99.9% up to 99.99% for some metals like aluminum, copper, and molybdenum, and ultra-high purities of 99.995%-99.9995+% for aluminum, tellurium, titanium, cadmium, silicon and molybdenum.

Target Selection

A wide selection of compound-based PLD targets are available: oxides, nitrides, borides, sulfides, selenides, tellurides, carbides, crystalline and composite mixtures. To achieve the best performance and to prevent the target from cracking or over-heating, we strongly recommend bonding any material target to a backing plate. Target bonding is a critical process, and the exact fabricating method employed can vary depending on the choice of the target material. A properly bonded PLD target will normally give a longer working life than a non-bonded target, may enable the use of a higher power input to achieve faster deposition rates, and will enable thin film process parameters to be consistently repeated.
