Yttrium aluminum garnet (YAG) is a synthetic crystalline material of the garnet group. It is a cubic yttrium aluminum oxide phase.
Molecular Weight:593.62 g/mol
Density:4.56 g/mL at 25 °C(lit.)
Can be used as a sputtering target to prepare bubble memory devices.Yttrium aluminum oxide finds application in ceramic, glass and optics due to its thermal stability and insolubility. It is used in the preparation of sputtering bonded targets in chemical processes viz. chemical vapor deposition, atomic thermal and electron beam evaporation. It is also used in solar, water treatment and fuel cell. Further, it is used as coloring and adhesive agents in enamels manufacture.
