Thin Film Technology: Maximize Evaporation Crucible Packing Density
With a set crucible volume, and run times limited by the amount of evaporation material in the crucible, the density of the material in the crucible becomes important. Any loose form of material will...Read More
Indium Sulfide for Thin Film Solar Cells
Here’s an interesting technology fact I just learned: Indium Sulfide was the very first indium compound to be discovered. I bet Reich and Richter (the discovers of indium) never imagined that smelly little compound would be used build solar modules and provide electricity. img alt="" src="//cdn2.content.compendiumblog.com/uploads/user/af12973f-cd7e-4c45-9491-c37a7fb2af13/f257d3c4-c185-4407-a4e9-16920aaabcb7/Image/632527810d9659bfd85c7155f6fa9776/cigs_sem_cross_section.jpg" style="border-width: 5px; border-style:...Read More

I caught up with Alan Rae after a recent IWLPC committee meeting, where he jokingly asked me to, “Stop asking important questions” – LOL! He was kind enough to give me a few moments of his time to share his wit and...Read More
Features & Benefits
Indium Corporation supports all primary thin film cell fabrication processes, offering materials for:
- Ink Printing
If you do not find what you're looking for, contact our team directly.
We offer the high quality materials and experienced technical support to help you get the most from your physical vapor deposition (PVD) process.
ITO is normally deposited by a physical vapor deposition process such as D.C. magnetron sputtering or electron beam deposition. Less frequently, ITO can be incorporated in inks using an appropriate film-forming polymer resin and solvent system, and deposited by screen printing - albeit with lower transparency and conductivity compared to a physical deposition process.
Indium Tin Oxide is available as a powder, but can also be supplied in the form of ITO Targets for sputtering or ITO chunk for thermal evaporation.
