Ytterbium(III) oxide is the chemical compound with the formula Yb2O3. It is one of the more commonly encountered compounds of ytterbium. It has the "rare-earth C-type sesquioxide" structure which is related to the fluorite structure with one quarter of the anions removed, leading to ytterbium atoms in two different six coordinate (non-octahedral) environments.
Ytterbium Oxide Sputtering Targets Information
Ytterbium Oxide Sputtering Targets
Circular: Diameter <= 14 inch, Thickness >= 1mm;
Block: Length <= 32 inch, Width <= 12 inch, Thickness >= 1mm.
Bonding is recommended for these materials. Many materials have characteristics that are not amenable to sputtering, such as brittleness and low thermal conductivity. This material may require a special ramp up and ramp down procedures. This process may not be necessary for other materials. Targets that have low thermal conductivity are susceptible to thermal shock.
