  1. 1. Reactive High Power Impulse Magnetron Sputtering of Metal Oxides

    Author : Montri Aiempanakit; Ulf Helmersson; Tomas Kubart; Straňák Vítězslav; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The work presented in this thesis deals with reactive magnetron sputtering processes of metal oxides with a prime focus on high power impulse magnetron sputtering (HiPIMS). The aim of the research is to contribute towards understanding of the fundamental mechanisms governing a reactive HiPIMS process and to investigate their implications on the film growth. READ MORE

  2. 2. HiPIMS-based Novel Deposition Processes for Thin Films

    Author : Asim Aijaz; Ulf Helmersson; Kostas Sarakinos; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : In this research, high power impulse magnetron sputtering (HiPIMS) based new deposition processes are introduced to address; the issue of low degree of ionization of C in magnetron sputtering discharges, and the difficulty encountered in thin film deposition on complex-shaped surfaces. The issue of low degree of C ionization is addressed by introducing a new strategy which is based on promoting the electron impact ionization ofC by increasing the electron temperature in the plasma discharge using Ne, instead of conventionally used Ar.
