  • We demonstrate that the microstructure of polycrystalline silicon thin films depends strongly on the flux of low energy ions that bombard the growth surface during magnetron sputter deposition. The deposition system is equipped with external electromagnetic coils which, through the unbalanced magnetron effect, provide direct control of the ion flux independent of the ion energy. We report the influence of low energy (<27 eV) Ar{sup +} on the low temperature (<450 degree sign C) growth of polycrystalline silicon thin films onto amorphous substrates. We use spectroscopic ellipsometry, Raman scattering, x-ray diffraction, and cross sectional transmission electron microscopy to analyze themore » film microstructure. We demonstrate that increasing the flux ratio of Ar{sup +} ions to silicon neutrals (J{sup +}/J{sup 0}) during growth by an order of magnitude (from 3 to 30) enables the direct nucleation of polycrystalline Si on glass and SiO{sub 2} coated Si at temperatures below 400 degree sign C. We discuss possible mechanisms for this enhancement of crystalline microstructure, including the roles of enhanced adatom mobility and the formation of shallow, mobile defects.« less
  • FeAl intermetallics possess good high temperature oxidation and corrosion resistance due to their ability to form protective Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} scales. Recently, the authors studied the effects of alloy coating grain size on the selective oxidation and scale spallation behaviors. The results indicated that a number of alloy coatings produced by magnetron sputter deposition possessed much better oxidation and scale spallation resistance than the as-cast alloys. The Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} scales that formed on the coatings showed a much finer grain size than those formed on the as-cast alloys. The adhesion between the oxide scales and metals was also improvedmore » due to the creep of metals and scales during oxidation. In the present work, FeAl intermetallic coatings were produced with the unbalanced magnetron sputter deposition technique. Cyclic oxidation tests were carried out to study the oxidation behavior of the coated and uncoated FeAl samples.« less
  • The oxidation behavior of Ti{sub 5}Si{sub 3} has been studied in air in the temperature range of 1,200 C to 1,400 C. The oxidation kinetics is slower than that predicted by the parabolic-rate law equation at 1,200 C, but is sharply enhanced beyond a temperature of 1,300 C. The oxidation kinetics of a Ti{sub 5}Si{sub 3}-8 wt pct Al alloy and a Ti{sub 5}Si{sub 3}-20 vol pct TiC composite at 1,200 C has also been investigated and compared to that of Ti{sub 5}Si{sub 3}. Alloying with Al does not alter the oxidation resistance much, but the presence of TiC reinforcementsmore » enhances the rate of oxidation significantly. The oxidation products have been identified and the mechanism of oxidation has been analyzed using thermodynamic and kinetic considerations.« less
  • Ti{sub 0.5}Al{sub 0.5}N alloy films, typically 1.5 {mu}m thick, were grown on MgO(001) at temperatures {ital T}{sub {ital s}} between 400 and 850 {degree}C by ultra-high-vacuum reactive magnetron sputtering in pure N{sub 2}. Films grown at {ital T}{sub {ital s}} between {congruent}480 and 560 {degree}C were single crystals in which the lattice misfit strain was partially relieved by glide of {l angle}001{r angle} misfit dislocations, with Burgers vector ={ital a}{sub 0}/2{l angle}011{r angle}, on {l brace}01{bar 1}{r brace} planes. Cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy investigation showed no evidence of residual extended defects in the films until thicknesses of {congruent}150 nm atmore » which point threading dislocations, oriented along the (001) growth direction, were observed. Surface-initiated spinodal decomposition, resulting in the formation of compositionally modulated NaCl-structure platelets along (001) with width {congruent}1 nm, occurred over a narrow growth temperature range between 540 and 560 {degree}C as a precursor to bulk phase separation of wurtzite-structure AlN at {ital T}{sub {ital s}}{ge}560 {degree}C. The alloy was continuously depleted of AlN at higher growth temperatures until the equilibrium two-phase structure, cubic TiN and wurtzite AlN, was obtained at {ital T}{sub {ital s}}{ge}750 {degree}C.« less
