In electro-discharge machining by using an electro-discharge machining electrode of a Cu(Ag)W(Mo) material, the machining speed, the electrode wear ratio, and the surface roughness of a work piece are improved. For this purpose, to the Cu(Ag)W(Mo) material, borates of an element selected from a group (M3) consisting of Mg, Ca, Sr, Ba, Sc, Y, and lanthanide and an iron group metal are added by appropriate amounts. As the borate compounds, particularly, it is preferred to use borate compounds expressed by M3

A dielectric layer for an electrostatic chuck is formed of a ceramic material having a first phase including aluminum oxide and a second phase including composite carbonitride (Ti, Me)(C, N) that contains titanium as fine grains. The Me represents a transition element and metals of Group 4 to Group 6 such as Mo and W. The ceramic material that includes the second phase by 0.05 vol % to 2.5 vol % has a volume resistivity value of about 10

Disclosed is an MgO target for sputtering, which can accelerate a film formation rate even when MgO is used as a target for sputtering in the formation of an MgO film. The MgO target for sputtering, which includes MgO and an electroconductive material as main components, and in which the electroconductive material is capable of imparting orientation to a MgO film when the MgO film containing the electroconductive material is formed by a DC sputtering.

Disclosed is a highly-pure fine titanium carbide powder having a maximum particle size of 100 nm or less and containing metals except titanium in an amount of 0.05 wt % or less and free carbon in an amount of 0.5 wt % or less. The powder has a NaCl-type crystal structure, and a composition represented by TiCxOyNz, wherein X, Y and Z satisfy the relations: 0.5X1.0; 0Y0.3; 0Z0.2; and 0.5X+Y+Z1.0.) The powder is produced by: dissolving an organic substance serving as a carbon source in a solvent to prepare a liquid, wherein the organic substance contains at least one OH or COOH group which is a functional group coordinatable to titanium of titanium alkoxide, and no element except C, H, N and O; mixing titanium alkoxide with the liquid to satisfy the following relation: 0.71.0 (wherein is a molar ratio of the carbon source to the titanium alkoxide), so as to obtain a precursor solution; and subjecting a product in the precursor solution to a heat treatment in a non-oxidizing atmosphere or a vacuum atmosphere at a temperature of 1050 to 1500 C. The present invention can provide fine titanium carbide powders with nano-scale particle sizes, which are free of inorganic impurities, such as titanium oxide and metal, low in free carbon, and effective in enhancing characteristics of a titanium carbide-ceramics composite sintered body.
