Adapting Conventional Sputtering Equipment for Coating Long Tubes and Strips.
J Vac Sci Technol 1980 17(5):1252-1253
A method for adapting conventional sputtering equipment to coat long tubes and strips was devised at the Albany (Oregon) Research Center, Bureau of Mines. This research was part of an effort to meet the Bureau's goal of minimizing the need for critical minerals through conservation, using coatings of metals applied by techniques such as sputtering, cladding, or surface alloying.
