|Abstract:||We have carried out direct diffusion measurements of Cu into Ta and Ta into Cu. Thin films of 50nm thickness of Cu were grown onto a thick Ta layer of 1μm by Ionized Metal Plasma. Samples were annealed in a rapid thermal system from temperatures ranging from 400°C to 800°C for periods of 60s and 180s. The diffusion profile was performed using Secondary ion mass spectroscopy. The Cu diffusion coefficients in Ta can be described by 3.0246 × 10-15 exp (-0.1747eV/kT) at 60s and 2.7532 × 10-15 exp (-0.1737eV/kT) at 180s. The Ta diffusion coefficients in Cu can be described by 2.07051 × 10-15 exp (-0.1773eV/kT) at 60s and 2.1271 × 10-15 exp (-0.1753eV/kT) at 180s. To assure reliability, the extent of both diffusions should be considered in device design and processing.|
