Application of lanthanum sputtering target
Sinc high-purity lanthanum oxide can be used for making precision lenses, lanthanum nickel alloy can be used as hydrogen storage material, and lanthanum hexaboride is widely used as a high-power electron emission cathode. So lanthanum sputtering are used for depositing Lanthanum compound thin film, or for other R&D purpose.
Storage and clean.
Lanthanum sputtering target must be protected by paraffin oil from oxidation.
1. Prepare 500 ml of acetone or ethanol liquid, open the package of the target, take the target out by tweezers ,and put the target into the acetone or ethanol liquid, and clean it by ultrasonic, until the target surface is clean.
2. If you don’t have a ultrasonic cleaner, you can put the target into the acetone or ethanol liquid, and use a soft brush to gently scrub the target surface, until the surface is clean.
3. Then do the flash drying and put the target into the magnetron sputtering system.
4. Pls keep the used target in paraffin oil if you don’t use it.
