Abstract [en]

In this work, we present the correlation between cathode composition and features of the arcing process for Mo1-xCux [x = 0.0, 0.07 (0.05), 0.14 (0.10), 0.21 (0.15), 0.40 (0.3), 0.73 (0.63), 0.97 (0.95), and 1.00, atomic fraction (weight fraction)] cathodes used in a DC vacuum-arc deposition system. It is found that the stability of the arcing process crucially depends on the cathode composition. The most stable arc spot and the lowest cathode potential (similar to 19 V) are detected for the Mo0.27Cu0.73 cathode, while the Mo0.93Cu0.07 cathode shows the most unstable arcing process with the highest cathode potential (similar to 28 V). The properties of the generated plasma are also strongly dependent on the relative ratio of the cathode elements. The metal ions from the Mo and Cu cathodes have peak kinetic energies around 136 and 62 eV, respectively, while for a Mo0.79Cu0.21 cathode, the corresponding energies are only 45 and 28 eV. The average charge states decreased from 2.1 to 1.6 for Mo ions and from 2 to 1.2 for Cu ions. The intensity of macroparticle generation and the size of the droplets correlate with the relative fraction of Cu. However, it is shown that, typically for the cathodes with a low amount of Cu, an increased abundance of visually observed macroparticles leads to droplet-free films. The film thicknesses and their compositions also demonstrate dependencies on the elemental composition of the cathode. These results are discussed in the light of no solubility between Mo and Cu and the high temperature of the cathode surface during the arcing process. Published under license by AIP Publishing.
