Homogeneous CIG Powder

One of the most common misconceptions about CIG powder is that it is made up of individual copper particles, indium particles, and gallium particles.

Indium Corporation's CIG powder is actually alloyed BEFORE it is made into powder, ensuring that each particle is the proper ratio of copper, indium, and gallium. As you might suspect, this leads to increased homogeneity in sputtering targets that are made with the CIG powder. This homogeneity provides enhanced consistency of performance when in use.
