磁控溅射靶材的利用率可成为磁控溅射源的工程设计和生产工艺成本核算的一个参数。截止2012年，还没有见到对磁控溅射靶材利用率专门或系统研究的报道，而从理论上对磁控溅射靶材利用率近似计算的探讨具有实际意义。对于静态直冷矩形平面靶，即靶材与磁体之间无相对运动且靶材直接与冷却水接触的靶， 靶材利用率( Z大值) 数据多在20%~30%左右(间冷靶相对要高一些，但其被刻蚀过程与直冷靶相同，不作专门讨论)，且多为估计值。为了提高靶材利用率，研究出来了不同形式的动态靶，其中以旋转磁场圆柱靶Z著名且在工业上被广泛应用，据称这种靶材的利用率Z高可超过70%，但缺少足够数据或理论证明。常见的磁控溅射靶材从几何形状上看有三种类型：矩形平面、圆形平面和圆柱管
How to improve the utilization rate is the key point of vacuum magnetron sputtering coating industry
The utilization ratio of magnetron sputtering target can be a parameter of engineering design and production cost accounting of magnetron sputtering source. Up to 2012, no special or systematic study on the utilization rate of magnetron sputtering target has been reported, but the theoretical study on the approximate calculation of the utilization rate of magnetron sputtering target has practical significance. For the static straight cold rectangular plane target, i.e. the target has no relative movement between the target and the magnet and the target is in direct contact with the cooling water, the target utilization (maximum value) data are mostly about 20% ~ 30% (the intercooled target is relatively higher, but its etching process is the same as that of the straight cold target, which is not specially discussed), and most of them are estimated values. In order to improve the target utilization, different forms of dynamic targets have been developed, among which the rotating magnetic field cylinder target is the most famous and widely used in industry. It is said that the highest utilization rate of this target can exceed 70%, but there is lack of sufficient data or theoretical proof. There are three types of common magnetron sputtering target materials in terms of geometry: rectangular plane, circular plane
and how to improve the utilization ratio of cylindrical tube are the key points of the vacuum magnetron sputtering coating industry. The utilization of cylindrical tube target is high, but it is not applicable in some industries.
The magnetron sputtering platform uses an external magnetic field to capture electrons, extend and bind the motion path of electrons, increase the ionization rate and coating rate.
1) The average energy of sputtered particles (mainly atoms, a small amount of ions, etc.) is several electron volts, much higher than the average kinetic energy KT of evaporated particles (the average kinetic energy of 3000K evaporation is only 0.26ev). The angular distribution of sputtered particles is related to the direction of incident ions. (2) The sputtering rate (the ratio of the number of sputtering particles to the number of incident ions) increases with the increase of incident ion energy (in the range of several thousand electron volts). When the energy of incident ion increases again, the sputtering rate reaches the extreme value; when the energy increases to tens of thousands of electron volts, the ion implantation effect increases and the sputtering rate decreases. (3) The sputtering rate increases with the increase of the incident ion mass. (4) The angle between the direction of the incident ion and the normal direction of the target surface increases, and the sputtering rate increases (the sputtering rate of oblique incidence is larger than that of vertical incidence). (5) Due to the focal length collision (the momentum transferred in the cascade process is more and more close to the atomic array direction), the sputtering takes place preferentially in the dense array direction. (6) The sputtering rate of different targets is very different.
