CVD phase diagrams for iridium films preparation
Keywords:Iridium, Thin films, CVD phase diagrams
Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) phase diagrams for the preparation of iridium films were calculated using Gibbs free energy minimization method. Iridium acetylacetonate (Ir(acac)3) was used as the precursor compound. Two gaseous mixtures were analyzed: Ir(acac)3-O2-Ar and Ir(acac)3-Ar. The deposition temperatures were explored from 300 to 800 °C, total pressures from 13.3 to 13.332 Pa and partial pressures of Ir(acac)3 gas and O2 gas from 0.001 to 1.000 Pa. The Ir-CVD diagrams predicted that without Oj gas in the gaseous mixture, the solid films consist of two solid phases: Ir+C. In contrast, with addition of O2 to the gaseous mixture, the Ir-CVD diagrams revealed different domains of condensed phases which include IrO2, IrO2+Ir, Ir and Ir+C. These diagrams allow one to establish the total pressures and temperatures required to obtain a given film composition. The results predicted by the Ir-CVD diagrams are in good agreement with those experimentally obtained.
