ULTRA HIGH PURITY SILICIDES CRITICAL TO MICROELECTRONICS


Only about 15% of silicides are refined to the purity level needed for optimal functioning of electronic applications. Materion’s chemical expertise enables us to produce silicide compounds to this crucial level. In addition, microelectronics must employ silicides that exhibit thermal and structural stability, high conductivity and the ability to withstand a harsh environment. Our silicide compounds are manufactured to meet those challenging requirements.

PVD SILICIDES PLAY KEY ROLE IN TECHNICAL APPLICATIONS

Thin film physical vapor deposition (PVD) materials are available in a variety of sputtering target geometries and evaporation forms and purities optimized for customers’ individual chamber types and deposition processes. These forms include powders, targets, pieces, granules and pellets.

With their thermal stability, conductivity and corrosion resistance, silicide compounds play a key role in such applications as:

  • Transistors and microelectronics
  • Wafers for semiconductors
  • Photovoltaics
  • Key components of integrated circuits
  • Thermoelectric devices
