Thermal ALD of aluminum metal at low temperature

Aluminum metal is important in semiconductor devices and as a metal itself in metallization and as an alloy in e.g. TiAl metal gates or TiAlN electrodes. Prof. Winter and his team at Wayne State have previously published new paths to thermal ALD of titanium, here they published their recent achievement for thermal ALD of aluminum!

Atomic Layer Deposition of Aluminum Metal Films Using a Thermally Stable Aluminum Hydride Reducing Agent

Kyle J Blakeney and Charles H. Winter
Chem. Mater., Just Accepted Manuscript

The thermal atomic layer deposition of aluminum metal films at temperatures as low as 100 °C is described using AlCl3 and a new aluminum dihydride complex that is supported by a bulky amido-amine ligand. A growth rate of about 3.5 Å/cycle was observed within a 120-160 °C ALD window and self-limiting growth was established for both precursors. Resistivities as low as 3.03 Ω·cm were obtained for the aluminum metal films. Root mean square surface roughnesses were 19-23% of the film thicknesses, as determined by atomic force microscopy. Films grown on TiN substrates were crystalline by X-ray diffraction. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy of films grown at 100 and 140 °C showed Al (> 94 at%) with C and Cl impurities below the detection limit (< 1 and 0.5 at%, respectively). Accordingly, this process affords high purity, low resistivity aluminum metal films.

  15. Thermal ALD of aluminum is a property of aluminum that is used to measure the amount of infrared radiation given off by an aluminum sample. This is useful in the area of precision machining where accurate heat control and temperature control are essential. There are many applications for the Thermal ALD of aluminum, and they include the mechanical tools and equipment such as grinders, plasma cutters, etc. that are commonly used in the fabrication industry to cut, carve, drill and weld. There are also many applications in aerospace and other areas where there is a need for high-precision machining. Since the ALD of aluminum can be manipulated both at low and high temperatures, it is important to know the effect of thermal erosion in a material with this unique property.

  16. Welding is the best process to join two or multiple metals together. Welding produces high heat to melt the metal and join them strongly. However, if you want to buy Hobart welding supplies at the lowest price you can visit the Service Welding Supply website.
