Our silicon target is up to 99.9999% and is annealed by melting process. Low gas content and uniform particle size distribution.

Silicon alloy targets are often used in semiconductors, Optics, nanotechnology, wafers, circuit manufacturing, etc.

It is used for depositing SiO2, Si3N4 and other dielectric layer by magnetic sputtering process. Those thin films are characterized by excellent hardness, optic, dielectric properties, wear and corrosion resistance, which is widely applied to the field of LCD transparent conducting glass, LOW-E building glass and micro-electronics.

We sell these different shape silicon metal materials by unit weight or piece for different use in research area and for new proprietary technologies.Actual prices can vary and may be higher or lower, as determined by availability and market fluctuations.
