Abstract

Metal-metal oxide or metal insulator films such as Al/x/(Al/2/O/3/)/l-x/, Cr/x/(Al/2/O/3/)/l-x/, Ti/x/(Al/2/O/3/)/l-x/, etc., proposed as candidates for thermal transfer printing ribbons, can be economically manufactured in quantity using single-source sputtering of the metal in an atmosphere containing oxygen.
