Sputtering targets, evaporation sources, and unique materials and shapes for thin-film or related applications are all manufactured by ACI Alloys. ACI, founded in 1985 by Paul Albert, Sc.D., has a long history of fabricating metals and alloys for thin films.
Dr. Albert is a metallurgist with over 50 years of experience. His extensive background in materials and thin film deposition provides their customers with experience in the fabrication of unique alloys; their clients include several of the world’s most prestigious academic and industrial research institutions. Customers can also get advice on the qualities of the elements and alloys they’re considering from their highly trained team.
Vacuum-arc melting on cold-copper hearths is one of their techniques, which reduces contamination and produces a high-purity product, whether it’s a pure metal or a tailored alloy. This technique also improves the alloy’s consistency and homogeneity. They recognize the need of speed in both quoting costs and delivering materials.
