Abstract
Atom probe tomography (APT) is a microscopic technique which has a unique capability to analyze thin films reactions in 3D. It has an outstanding resolution of 0.05 nm in depth and 0.01 nm laterally. In addition to that, the chemical/isotopic nature of the species is determined with the aid of time of flight (TOF) mass spectrometry. The technique works on the principle of field evaporation from a sample in the shape of sharp needle. Lateral distribution of the evaporated atoms is gained by position sensitive detector. The depth profiling is calculated from the data sequence and the shrinkage of the sample during field evaporation. The standard APT with high voltage pulses was limited to the highly conductive metals and alloy, but with the introduction of short laser pulses, APT overcomes the limitations and now the analysis semiconductors, insulating materials and even polymers became possible. In this work, the interfaces atomic structure between transition metals (M) and amorphous Silicon (a-Si) at M/a-Si/M sequence have been investigated using Laser-assisted atom probe tomography (APT). An intermixed zone was measured with a more or less continuous transition and around 6?1 nm width is observed for the M on a-Si stacking. In contrast, a much sharper interface of less than 1.4?0.4 nm width for the a-Si on top of M. This asymmetric behavior was found to be even more pronounced after a short (10-30 min) annealing at temperatures higher than the deposition temperature (room temperature). The same behavior was observed in case of planer geometry investigated by SNMS, which confirms the existence of the asymmetric behavior.
