Cobalt is a brittle, hard metal, resembling iron and nickel in appearance. The free element, produced by reductive smelting, is a hard, lustrous, silver-gray metal. The cobalt sputtering targets are common used in information storage industry. The related film products prepared using sputtering targets include hard disks, magnetic heads, optical disks, etc. Cobalt-based alloy targets are widely used in cutting-edge scientific fields such as inverter components and switching power supplies. Cobalt alloy targets can also be used for magnetic materials for data storage tapes. Typical materials are Co-Fe, Co-Fe-Ta-Zr, Co-Ni, Co-Ni-Cr, Co-Cr, Co-Cr-Ta sputtering targets. AEM can provide various Cobalt alloy sputtering targets as you requested.
