Indium has the best thermal conductivity of all available bonds and is the most efficient at drawing heat away from the target. Indium is also more malleable than other bonding solders and therefore it is more forgiving. An Indium-based Metallic bond provides good thermal and electrical conductivity and is recommended for most sputtering applications.
