Electrical and dielectrical properties of tantalum oxide films grown by Nd:YAG laser assisted oxidation

Turan, Raşit
Tantalum pentoxide (Ta(2)O(5)) thin films (20 to 44 nm) have been grown by 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser oxidation of Ta deposited films with various thickness on Si. Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectrum, thickness distribution, dielectric and electrical properties of laser grown oxide layers have been studied. The effect of the sputtered Ta film thickness, laser beam energy density and the substrate temperature on the final Ta(2)O(5) film structure has been determined. It is shown that the oxide layers obtained for the laser beam energy density in the range from 3.26 to 3.31 J/cm(2) and the substrate temperature around 350 degrees C have superior properties. FTIR measurement demonstrates that the Ta(2)O(5) layers are obtained with the laser assisted oxidation technique. Metal Oxide Semiconductor capacitors fabricated on the grown oxide layers exhibits typical Capacitance-Voltage, Conductance-Voltage and Current-Voltage characteristics. However, the density of oxide charges is found to be slightly higher than the typical values of thermally grown oxides. The conduction mechanism studied by Current-Voltage measurements of the capacitors indicated that the current flow through the oxide layer is modified Poole-Frenkel type. It is concluded that the Ta(2)O(5) films formed by the technique of Nd:YAG laser-enhanced oxidation at relatively low substrate temperatures are potentially useful for device applications and their properties can be further improved by post oxidation annealing processes.

Akaoglu, B; Atilgan, I; Katircioglu, B (Elsevier BV, 2003-08-01)
Two sets of hydrogenated amorphous silicon carbide (a-SiCx:H) thin films were grown on glass and c-Si substrates by Plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) technique at pressures of 0.5 and 0.1 Torr. The influence of the pressure on the distribution of thicknesses, refractive indices at 632.8 nm and optical gaps from the edge to the center of the bottom electrode of PECVD system is examined by transmission, single wavelength ellipsometry and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. A recently intr...
Electrical and magnetic properties of Si ion implanted YBa2Cu3O7-delta thin films and microbridges
Avci, I; Tepe, A; Serincan, U; Oktem, B; Turan, Raşit; Abukay, D (Elsevier BV, 2004-11-01)
Fabrication of superconducting bilayer YBa2Cu3O7-delta (YBCO) thin film structure by Si ion implantation and properties of microbridge patterned on that are presented. YBCO thin film of 150 nm thickness was grown on single crystal (100) SrTiO3 substrate by inverted cylindrical magnetron sputtering. The sample was implanted with 100 keV, 1 X 10(16) Si ions/cm(2). Upon implantation with Si, the sample lost its electrical conductivity and diamagnetism while its crystalline structure was preserved after the ann...
Structural and optical characteristics of tantalum oxide grown by pulsed Nd : YAG laser oxidation
Atanassova, E; Aygun, G; Turan, Raşit; Babeva, T (American Vacuum Society, 2006-03-01)
Tantalum pentoxide (Ta2O5) thin films (20-50 nm) have been grown by 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser oxidation of Ta film deposited on Si. The chemical bonding, structure, and optical properties of the films have been studied by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, x-ray diffraction, and reflectance measurements at normal light incidence in the spectral range of 350-800 nm. The effect of the substrate temperature (250-400 degrees C) during oxidation and its optimization with respect to the used laser beam energy de...
Indium tin oxide thin films elaborated by sol-gel routes: The effect of oxalic acid addition on optoelectronic properties
Kesim, Mehmet Tumerkan; Durucan, Caner (Elsevier BV, 2013-10-31)
Single layer indium tin oxide (ITO) thin films were deposited on glass using modified sol-gel formulations. The coating sols were prepared using indium (InCl3 center dot 4H(2)O) and tin salts (SnCl4 center dot 5H(2)O). The stable sols were obtained using ethanol (C2H5OH) and acetylacetone (C5H8O2) as solvents and by the addition of oxalic acid dihydrate (C2H2O4 center dot 2H(2)O) in different amounts. The effect of oxalic acid content in the sol formulation and post-coating calcination treatment (in air at ...
Stability and degradation of plasma deposited boron nitride thin films in ambient atmosphere
Anutgan, Tamila Aliyeva; Anutgan, Mustafa; Atilgan, Ismail; Katircioglu, Bayram (Elsevier BV, 2009-11-02)
Boron nitride (BN) thin films were deposited at 296 K, 398 K, 523 K and 623 K by low power radio frequency plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition with nitrogen (N-2.) and hydrogen diluted diborane (15% B2H6 in H-2) source gases. Fourier transform infrared and UV-visible spectroscopies were used to investigate the stability and degradation of BN films under ambient air conditions. The action of moisture on the films is reduced with increasing substrate temperature (T-s) to the detriment of the film growth...
