It’s all about teamwork and building a “Bond” with our customers. AEE is partnered with a highly skilled production team, that has the knowledge and skills to produce sputtering targets to demanding specifications.
The selection of a backing plate is critical to mounting in the sputtering system. Do you need custom backing plates? No Problem. We can supply the following backing plate materials:
- OFHC Copper
- Copper Chromium
- Aluminum Alloys
- Stainless Steel
We also provide bonding services to adhere the sputtering targets to the backing plates. Indium and Silver-Epoxy bonding agents are chosen as they provide high electrical and thermal conductivity, channeling heat and charge build-up away from the target. They also protect the target-backing plate interface from diffusion and alleviate stress caused by differing thermal expansion at the interface by thermal creep.
