This specification covers sputtering targets fabricated from chromium metal for use in thin film applications. The grades of chromium covered in this specification, are based on the total metallic impurity content of the metallic elements, and are classified as 4N, 3N7, 3N5, 3N, and 2N8. Materials shall be tested using analytical methods such as combustion/infrared spectrometry, thermal conductivity, atomic absorption spectrometry, direct current plasma, inductively coupled plasma, and spark source mass spectroscopy or glow discharge mass spectroscopy; and the individual grades shall conform to specified values of chemical composition, density, grain size.
