Abstract

The effect of high energy ion bombardment on the structure of sputtered niobium films has been studied. The 1000 Å films were sputtered onto silicon substrates. The films were oriented with a [110] fiber texture and were found to have a monoclinically distorted cell characteristic of compressive stress, where the stress direction is parallel to the film surface. Bombardment with 300 keV Xe+ ions, which for the most part did not reach the silicon interface, merely expanded the volume of the distorted as-sputtered niobium unit cell. However, bombardment with 600 keV Xe+ ions, which have a mean range extending to the interface, relaxed the unit cell toward the configuration of a cubic geometry.
