In the electron industry, molybdenum sputtering target can apply in two-dimensional display. This is because molybdenum has high melting point, high conductivity, corrosion resistance and low specific impedance and other advantages. What’s more it is the environmental friendly material as well.
Early ago, people use chromium as wiring material of two-dimensional display. But with the development of display the enlargement and high-precisionize are required so the specific impedance material are more required. Besides, environmental protection is also an important question should be considered. Compare to chromium the specific impedance and membrane stress of molybdenum only 1/2. What’s more it is an environmental friendly material, so molybdenum is the one of preferred material for two-dimensional display sputtering target. On the other hand, using molybdenum in LED components and parts can improve display’s luminance, contrast ratio, color and use life.
In two-dimensional display industry, TFT-LCD is one of the applied main realms of molybdenum sputtering target. Market research found that in the next few years LCD will be the peak period of development and the annual rate of growth is about 30%. With the LCD development, the consumption of LCD sputtering target also increase faster and the annual rate of growth is about 20%.
