|Abstract:||It was reported that the reaction between Al and Ti takes place and Al3Ti compound is formed during the annealing at 500 °C. Annealing at higher temperatures, such as 550 and 600 °C, the Al3Ti compound transforms to Al5Ti2. It is believed that the Al5Ti2 is thermodynamically stable comparing with Al3Ti. In the present research, the interfacial reactions in Al-0.5 wt.% Cu/Ti/SiO2/Si structure have been investigated in the samples prepared by ionized metal plasma (IMP) and then annealed at various temperatures from 200 to 600 °C for 30 min in Argon ambient. The results obtained by Rutherford backscattering spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy show that there is a Ti layer (52 nm in thickness) between Al5Ti2 and SiO2 and there is no formation of the ternary compound - AlxTiySiz, which is detrimental in the contact metallization layer. It indicates that the Ti layer deposited by IMP technique acts as a barrier to retard the reaction between Al5Ti2 and SiO2 and consequentially protect the contact metallization layer.|
