Microstructure and electrical characterizations of yttrium oxide and yttrium silicate thin films deposited by pulsed liquid-injection plasma-enhanced metal-organic chemical vapor deposition

Abstract

Results on yttrium oxide and yttrium silicate films elaborated by an innovative metal-organic chemical vapor deposition process combining plasma assistance and a liquid precursor supply setup are presented. Plasma assistance enables deposition at a much lower substrate temperature and the pulsed-liquid precursor source allows an accurate control of the injected reactive species. According to x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy sXPSd analyses, we show that ultrathin yttrium oxide deposition can be performed at temperature less than 380 °C. Yttrium oxide films contain carbon contamination that can be reduced by increasing the deposition temperature. The plasma plays a key role in the deposition mechanisms and thus in the chemical structure of the films and of the interface. It is shown that the injection frequency, i.e., the reactive species incoming frequency, plays a significant role in the silicate and interface formation. A detailed study is presented using angle-resolved XPS. A high injection frequency limits the formation of SiO2 interfacial layer and also of the silicate and favors the growth of yttrium oxide. In addition, silicate formation also depends on the deposition temperature. Electrical results show that as-deposited film at 350°C has a low leakage current J <10−7 A/cm2 d and a high breakdown field (~ 8 MV/cm)
