Bonded Sputtering Targets are a Bi-Metallic Assembly
Whenever two materials with different coefficient of thermal expansion values are bonded together, they will expand and contract as the temperature changes. Assuming these two materials are bonded rigidly, there are two things that can happen as the temperature changes: 1) the bond will break apart…
NanoBond® is a Fluxless Process
Fluxes are an interesting element of working with many solder applications. With so many specialized fluxes there is usually a perfectly-tailored flux for removing oxides from any solderable surface. Even though we love fluxes at Indium Corporation – not all of our customers share that same affection. It…
High Temperature (Braze Alloy) Sputtering Target Bonding, with NanoFoil®
In an earlier post I mentioned one of the presentations we gave at the 2013 SVC TechCon. The other presentation that our team delivered at the show (presented by Jacques Mateau) regarded another very interesting topic. The paper, High Temperature, Pb-Free, Metallic Sputtering Target Bonding…
