Hi. I was wondering if anyone knew what Disk Sputtering was. You don't have to answer all the questions, any help will do. Specifically:

1. What is it used for?

****2. Which companies (and what are their depts) that would do this stuff?****

3. How do they compare?


Thanks!

Disk sputtering is the process of depositing the thin film on the surfaces of platters used in disk drives.  Sputtering in general is described here: http://www.gencoa.com/tech/fundamental.html

A company that does this is http://www.intevac.com/company/details.asp?ConID=158

Disk drive manufacturers may manufacture their own platters or subcontract it out, so it depends.  It would definitely be part of the manufacturing department.  Are you writing a paper?  We can't do your homework for you, you know.

Hi, thanks for your help. I am looking for someone familiar with that technology I have a lot more questions but those I fully intend to hammer out on my own. I just wanted a starting point because I am having difficulty identifying which dept's of some manufacturing company that would handle these kinds of issues. I have identified disk sputtering being used in storage devices, just looking for more potential depts or products that rely on the disk sputtering process. Thanks for your understanding and I welcome any more feedback.Thanks.

Other departments may be the fabrication dept, research dept, dept of metallurgy, or dept of materials science.
