In order to gain optimized target use the magnetic field is simulated using a 2D commercially available finite element modelling package. The data generated is then used by Gencoa for simulations such as target erosion and coating uniformity. More info > 

Sputtering Fundamentals

Magnetron sputtering is the most widely used method for thin film vacuum deposition. The impact of an atom or ion produces 'sputtering' from the target surface as a result of momentum transfer from the incoming particle.
