The Si K- and L-edge results show that Si does not diffuse to the surface for all the films. The high resolution Ti L-edge and N K-edge spectra show that the TiNx layer undergoes a dramatic chemical reaction with the gradual increase in the annealing temperature. This chemical reaction stabilizes at 560°C at which the TiNx film is known to fail to act as an effective diffusion barrier between Al and Si.||Source Title:||Journal of Synchrotron Radiation||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/93017||ISSN:||09090495||DOI:||10.1107/S0909049500018252|
