Analysis of dominant impurities in Cu and Ta films using SIMS and GDMS

Jae-Won Lim,Minoru Isshiki


Secondary ion mass spectrometry(SIMS) and glow discharge mass spectrometry(GDMS) were used to determine the impurity concentrations of hydrogen, carbon, and oxygen elements in the Cu and Ta films, and the results of SIMS and GDMS analysis were carefully considered. The Cu and Ta films were deposited on Si (100) substrates at zero substrate bias voltage and a substrate bias voltage of -50 V(Cu films) or -125 V(Ta films) using a non-mass separated ion beam deposition method. As a result of SIMS with Cs+ ion beam, in the case of the Cu and Ta films deposited without the substrate bias voltage, many strong peaks were observed, which is considered to be detected as a the cluster state such as CxHx, OxHx, CxOxHx. All the peaks of SIMS results could be interpreted by the combination of these dominant impurities. Moreover, it was confirmed that the quantitative results of GDMS analysis were accordant to the SIMS results.
