The Plansee Group, headquartered in Reutte, Austria, will attend the virtual SVC Technical Conference, May 3-7, 2021, at booth #615. During the exhibition, the group stated that its coating experts will provide all relevant information about the company’s activities in the field of vacuum coatings.
On May 5, Christian Linke and Peter Polcik will spotlight the group’s new developments on sputtering targets in their presentation, ‘Sputtering targets by Powder Metallurgy for display, energy and hard coating applications’. In addition to recent results on dark molybdenum oxide coatings for display applications, the presentation will provide an overview of sputtering targets made from nitride, carbide and boride materials.
Harald Köstenbauer, a developer of thin-film materials at Plansee, is also participating at the conference with a poster contribution on ‘Resistance reduction in molybdenum films by seed layer application’. The focus is on sputtered molybdenum films with the lowest electrical resistance. In cooperation with the Austrian Institute Of Technology (AIT), another joint poster contribution deals with sputtered transparent molybdenum oxide films for special types of thin-film solar cells.
The Plansee Group is reputedly the only manufacturer of sputtering targets to perform every stage of the production process in-house. From the raw material to the finished product, including the development of new materials and the optimisation of its coating methods and coatings.
