Alumina-doped Zinc Oxide Sputtering Target AZO
AZO, Zinc Oxide with Alumina doping (ZnO / Al2O3, 98/2 wt%,) Sputtering Targets
The standard Cu backing plate thickness is 0.125 inch (3.175 mm). If a different thickness is required, please specify on the order.
Alumina-doped Zinc Oxide (AZO) sputtering targets with high density and small grain sizes are available from MSE Supplies. The purity of AZO Sputtering Targets provided by MSE Supplies is minimum 99.9%.
Both standard size and customized sizes are available upon request.
Typical Sputtering Procedure
Dependent on process. AZO films can be deposited by RF or DC magnetron sputtering, but not by thermal evaporation. If the sputter target is non-conducting, as with a ceramic composition, RF sputter techniques are necessary; otherwise reactive DC magnetron sputtering is preferred.
Target power density ~3-4 W/cm2 with an O2 to Ar flow rate ~2:1.
Operating total pressure ~6 mTorr.
Substrate temperature near 200°C.
Higher power and greater thicknesses produce lower sheet resistances.
AZO targets are used in semiconductor, chemical vapor deposition (CVD) and physical vapor deposition (PVD) display and optical applications.
