  • SiO{sub 2} films were deposited on silicon wafers at 25 C by plasma enhanced decomposition of tetraethoxysilane (TEOS) in a mixture of argon and oxygen. The deposition was performed in a rf-powered (13.56 MHz) asymmetric plasma reactor. The effect of ion bombardment was evaluated by varying the ion energy flux (IEF) at the substrate surface from 0.93 to 9.94 W/cm{sup 2}. On-line optical emission spectra (OES) revealed CO, CH, and H peaks whose absorption intensities increased with increasing applied power. On-line mass spectrometer data showed that the peak intensities of OC{sub 2}H{sub 5}, SiOH (m/e = 45), and HSiOH (m/emore » = 46) fragments decreased with increasing applied power indicating the decomposition of these species. FTIR spectra of the deposited films showed that the concentrations of Si-OH and trapped CO gases in the film decreased with increasing IEF. Also, the FTIR results and the refractive index measurements indicated that the film density increased as a function of IEF. The stoichiometry of the film did not change when IEF was below 2, but for IEF greater than 4.91 W/cm{sup 2}, the film became Si-rich.« less
  • The authors have established a correlation between localized states responsible for mid-gap optical emission and film mobility of GaN grown under different nitrogen conditions. By imposing a deflector voltage at the tip of the plasma source, the authors varied the ion-neutral flux ratio to determine how N ions affect mid-gap luminescence and electrical mobility. Low energy electron-excited nanometer scale luminescence (LEEN) spectroscopy in ultrahigh vacuum (UHV) showed mid-gap emission intensities in the bulk that decreased in the ratio, 50:1.3:1 with increasing deflector voltage. Hall measurements indicated over a factor of two increase in mobility, and a factor of 8 decreasemore » in residual charge density with increasing deflector voltage. The correlation of optical and electrical properties with a reduction in N ion flux suggests the primary role of native defects, such as N or Ga vacancies, in the mid-gap emissions.« less
  • Ion-induced release of deuterium (D) from carbon was investigated as a possible mechanism for the supershot conditioning in TFTR. Carbon was implanted to saturation with 300 eV D and then bombarded with 0.6 and 1.2 keV helium ions and 3 keV carbon ions. Nuclear reaction analysis was used to monitor the areal density of D remaining in the samples during the ion bombardment. Initial D releases rates up to 10 D atoms per incident ion were observed. The results show that the amount of D that would be removed by ion-induced release from the TFTR limiter is similar to themore » pumping capacity produced by supershot conditioning. 9 refs., 5 figs.« less
  • The surface composition and low energy sputter yield of deuterium bombarded CVD TiB/sub 2/ films have been measured. The sputter yield increases with energy up to 1 keV where it reaches a maximum of 0.024 atoms/ion. Above 1 keV the yield decreases due to ion penetration effects. Surface composition measurements using Auger, x-ray photoelectron and secondary ion mass spectroscopies show that a surface layer about 200 A thick is depleted in B during 2 keV deuterium bombardment. This effect is attributed to preferential sputtering. Oxides and deuterides of titanium are also observed on the deuterium bombardment TiB/sub 2/ surface.
