Welcome to our virtual booth for the 2021 SVC TechCon Conference!
Photonic PVD and Evaporation Coatings

Zinc Sulfide (ZnS) & Magnesium Fluoride (MgF2)
Zinc Sulfide (ZnS)
Magnesium Fluoride (MgF2)
SCI Engineered Materials offers MgF2 in 99.9%purity, and in many different sizes. Visit the MgF2 shop page for more info, or to request a quote.
Titanium (Ti) & Silicon (Si)
Barium Strontium Titanate (Ba0.5Sr0.5TiO3)
Barium Strontium Titanate (BST)
This BST Target Assembly weighs in at nearly 22lbs!
Composed of a copper backing plate, a BST target, and a thin layer of Indium to bond the two, this large planar target is exemplary of both our bonding capabilities, as well as our scalability.
Inset Targets for Specialty Cathodes
We can produce a diverse range of sputtering targets for various magnetron cathode designs, which includes Chi, Upsilon, and, as seen here Mu Inset.
Our ability to create these targets is not limited to only standard materials, and we welcome all types of material requests, even precious metals!
Delta Target & AZO Dogbone Target
Aluminum Oxide (Al2O3) Delta Target (Left)
Al2O3 is a delicate but versitile ceramic. This was machined into a 'delta' shape per our customer's needs. We excel at custom ceramics and employ a host of specialty machinery to create custom ceramic powders.
AZO Dogbond Cylinder (Right)
Aluminum Zinc Oxide (AZO) is an extremely versatile semiconductor! As one of SCI Engineered Material's specialties, we produce this advanced ceramic in every shape and size. Pictured here is a dogbone cylinder, differing from regular rotary cylinders by the slight angle of the material at the end similar to that of an iconic dogbone. This slight angle is a testament to our machining capabilities.
Standing at over 1 meter tall, this rotary target is composed of a stainless steel backing tube, four (4) Al2O3 sleeves, and a thin layer of indium metal to adhere the sleeves to the backing tube.
SCI has well over 20 years of working with the craft and science of indium bonding. In fact, in 2008 and 2009 respectively SCI received federal Third Frontier Grants specifically for our advances in indium bonding!
Our custom-built C-Scan machine can verify bond integrity in rotary targets of up to 3 Meters (9 Feet) long! Perfect for large area glass coating projects that are moving to full-scale production.
Bonded Silicon Assembly (Left)
This medium-sized planar target consists of a pure Silicon Target, a copper backing plate, and a thin layer of Indium to bond the two together.
Zinc Oxysulfide (Middle-Left)
Zinc Oxysulfide sees wide uses ranging to the fields of thin-film solar, where it can be used as a buffer layer in CIGS solar cells, to photocatalytic, and optoelectronic technologies as well.
Barium Zirconate (Middle-Right)
Barium Zirconate, typically abbreviated as BZO is used extensively in the solid-state memory market. This material is unconventional and warrants more study to unlock its full potential
Engineered Materials (Right)
SCI Engineered Materials explores all aspects and avenues in which our materials can be applied. From specialized powders to experimental 3D Printing feedstock, our R&D Department will work with you to get the right material, engineered for your specific need.
SCI Engineered is proud to have served the optics industry for over 25 years. Our wealth of experience and knowledge with engineered optical materials is at your fingertips, just send us a quote today!
Cast & Thermal Sprayed Rotary Targets
Cast Rotary Target (Left)
Aside from bonding our materials onto backing tubes, there are two other novel ways to prepare a rotary target. A cast target is monolithic where the target material and backing plate are cast, creating one solid piece. Popular types of cast targets include Aluminum and Stainless Steel.
Thermal-Sprayed Target (Right)
The second method of creating a rotary target is to spray the material as a plasma onto the required backing tube. As the material cools, it adheres to the backing plate and then is machined to spec.
