    Sputtering targets must meet ever tougher standards for high quality to produce sub-micron scale and wafer targets in ever larger sizes.

    - Low particle

    - Good film uniformity

    - High usage efficiency

    Features of Semiconductor Sputtering Targets

    - Low-particle targets

    - ULVAC has developed sputtering targets that suppress generation of particles that can be the source of problems in the sputtering process.

    - Gaseous elements are one factor in causing particle emissions especially in aluminum targets and we are working to lower emissions by utilizing a vacuum melting method in the refining and ingot purification processes.

    - Attaining high uniformity by adjusting the metal microstructure

    - ULVAC uses manufacturing processes that ensure high uniformity and a fine metal microstructure in most of its targets for semiconductor products including high purity cobalt targets and titanium targets.

    - Utilizing a fine metal microstructure having a high degree of uniformity for example allows uniform the magnetic flux leakage on the target surface of high purity cobalt targets.

    - Meticulous quality control system

    - Integrated process manufacturing at ULVAC takes product characteristics and contours into account during production. Sophisticated analysis/evaluation system such as the GD-MS (glow discharge mass spectrometer) ensure purity along with a high level of quality.
