Thin Film Deposition Vacuum Process

Thin Film DepositionThe vacuum process of thin film deposition involves the application of coatings of pure materials over the surface of different objects. The thickness of coatings or films typically possess a range of microns and angstroms. Therefore, they can be of single material or a layered structure of multiple materials.

Using quartz crystal monitoring, there are basic principles used to control the thickness and rate of thin film deposition. Secondly, this process is effectively used for many component products like cell phones, screen displays and even eyeglasses. Over the surface pure materials are applied as coatings on varied objects.

The key class of deposition methods is evaporation which involves heating a solid material within a high vacuum chamber in which vapor pressure is produced. Consequently, relatively low vapor pressure is adequate to raise a vapor cloud within the vacuum chamber, which is then condensed over surfaces as a coating or film.

Depositing Thin Films

Depositing Thin Films for Sputtering Targets

Sputtering Targets and Depositing Thin Films from Kamis, Inc.

Sputtering is a unique and repeatable process and has the ability for depositing thin films from a range of materials on to different shapes and sizes of substrates. The process can be upgraded from research and development projects to manufacturing of batches involving medium to large substrate areas.

In order to realize efficient momentum, transfer projectile mass must be able to match target mass. Therefore, for sputtering heavy elements xenon or krypton is used and for light elements neon is utilized. Generally, sputtering gas is an inert gas, such as argon.

Reactive gases utilized for sputtering compounds: The chemical reaction can take place on the substrate or on the target surface depending on the parameters of the process. These parameters make sputter deposition a challenging process, but nevertheless provide experts a greater level of control over the microstructure and growth of the film.

Obtain the required characteristics in a sputter deposited thin film. The production process utilized to build the sputtering target can be of significant importance. Regardless of the fact that the target material has an element, mixture of elements, compound, or alloys, the process undertaken to create that defined material, which is ideal for sputtering thin films of uniform quality, is equally important as the deposition run parameters perfected by scientists and engineers dealing in thin film processes.

Sputtered Films and Sputtering Targets

Kamis Sputtered Films for the Deposition of Thin and Sputtered Films

Sputtered FilmsSputtering is one of the most popular technologies for deposition of thin films or Sputtered Films. Although sputtering was first developed about 200 years ago, since World War II it has become increasingly important. This includes the creation of innovative devices. Also becoming fundamental in sustaining the growing demand for semiconductor circuits and other electronic devices.

Sputtering targets have found increasing penetration not in electronics. Additionally, it is in use in sectors such as mechanical/chemical, energy, optical coating, and life science, among others.

Fabrication processes for thin films

For decades sputtering was primarily used in microelectronics for fabrication of semiconductor devices. Though in recent years, the semiconductor industry transitions to new processes that allow for the fabrication of thin films below 20 nm.  Sputtering has found alternative sources of demand in other industry segments. It is used variously in such products as flat panel displays and solar cell manufacturing.

In fact, over time the availability of sputtering materials has expanded. This meets the requirements of the most varied applications within the electronics, mechanical/chemical, energy, optical coatings, life science, and food packaging sectors.

Thin Metal Films Analysis: Sputtered Neutral Mass Spectrometry

It’s Kamis for Thin Metal Films

Thin Metal FilmsSputtered Neutral Mass Spectrometry is perfect for analyzing thin metal films where composition, thickness and interface condition can be determined. The example presented here, shows a magnetic film stack comprising Cr, Ni, Cu and Fe. Of the different methods of data storage, magnetic hard discs still offer highly economic means for high density rapid access.

The continual move towards more and more compact read/write heads. While more closely spaced data tracks has lead to a considerable development of magnetic materials and structures for this demanding application. Analysis of the metallic layer structures used in magnetic data storage is vital for both development and quality management. Included is secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) and sputtered neutral mass spectrometry (SNMS). These offering information on minor and major element composition respectively.

SIMS and SNMS

Both SIMS and SNMS use a concentrated, mono- energetic, chemically pure ion beam of typically 1-10 keV to sputter erode the surface under study. Mass spectrometry technique: all elements and isotopes may be detected, and in favorable conditions the detection limit can be in the low ppb region. However, because the ionization mechanism for SIMS takes place at the sample surface, it is very much dependent on the local chemistry and the ionized fraction can vary by several orders of magnitude. This makes SIMS ideal for trace analysis in materials of known matrix. SNMS overcomes the “matrix effect” by separating the sputtering and ionization events.

Metal Targets During Sputtering

KAMIS Consistently Provides High Quality Metal Targets

Metal TargetsKAMIS provides a range of forms, sizes and configurations of pure PVD sputtering metal targets for thin film coating applications. Consequently, our metal sputtering targets are guaranteed for reproducibility, homogeneity and uniformity.

When a Cu surface is sputtered by ion bombardment under the condition that Mo atoms arrive at the Cu surface during sputtering an unexpected phenomenon can arise: the surface of the Cu target becomes covered with microscopic cones. Also contact KAMIS about Au, Pt, Gd, Be, Ca, Sm, Ag, W, Zn, Ti, Nb, Pd, Sc, Cr, Rh, Mn, metal sputtering targets.

Dense Cone Coverage and Sputtering Yield

The cone density increases with increasing flux density of arriving Mo atoms. When the cones are closely spaced they give the target a velvet-like black appearance. The result of dense cone coverage are a lower sputtering yield and a more oblique ejection of sputtered material.

Finally, the cone tops seem to consist of Mo nuclei which are constantly replenished via surface migration and protect the underlying Cu from being sputtered.

Thin Film Vacuum Coating

Thin Film Sputtering Composition Measure

Thin Film Sputtering Composition Technique in the Sputtering Process

Thin Film SputteringSecondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS) is a Thin Film Sputtering technique. Used in materials, this science studies the composition of thin films and solid surfaces. Implemented by using the sputtering the sample’s surface with a focused primary ion beam.

In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in studying dopants and contaminants in thin layers near surface in samples. This is due to device structures get smaller and smaller.

SIMS can be used for examining the elementary composition of the surface as well as near surface region of samples. Measured sensitivity is down to parts per billion. In order to get the maximum performance from the device, atmospheric contaminants with low atomic weight such as and oxygen (O), carbon (C), and hydrogen (H) should have low concentration levels.

SIMS: A High Sensitivity Surface Analysis Technique

In SIMS analysis, contamination of hydrocarbons on the surface of the sample to be assessed may produce incorrect results. Hydrocarbons exist abundantly in ambient atmosphere. Therefore, these often deposit on the surface of samples when exposed to air.

During SIMS analysis, the atmospheric contamination on the surface can be embedded into the sample by means of a primary ion beam. Consequently, this contamination leads to distorted or spurious profiles. Therefore, it is very important for operators to know whether they are determining the surface’s composition, or just viewing an artifact caused by contamination.
