Abstract [en]

TiN films have been grown on SiO2 by reactive high-power impulse magnetron sputtering (HiPIMS) at temperatures of 22 degrees C-600 degrees C. The film resistance is monitored in situ to determine the coalescence and continuity thicknesses that decrease with increasing growth temperature with a minimum of 0.38 +/- 0.05 nm and 1.7 +/- 0.2 nm, respectively, at 400 degrees C. We find that HiPIMS-deposited films have significantly lower resistivity than dc magnetron sputtered (dcMS) films on SiO2 at all growth temperatures due to reduced grain boundary scattering. Thus, ultrathin continuous TiN films with superior electrical characteristics can be obtained with HiPIMS at reduced temperatures compared to dcMS.
