Titanium arsenide films from the atmospheric pressure chemical vapour deposition of tetrakisdimethylamidotitanium and tert-butylarsine

Abstract

Thin films of titanium arsenide have been deposited from the atmospheric pressure chemical vapour deposition (APCVD) of [Ti(NMe2)4] and tBuAsH2 at substrate temperatures between 350–550 °C. Highly reflective, silver coloured films were obtained which showed borderline metallic-semiconductor resistivities. The titanium arsenide films were analyzed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Raman spectroscopy, wavelength dispersive analysis of X-rays (WDX), powder X-ray diffraction (XRD) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The films showed variable titanium to arsenic ratios but at substrate temperatures of 500 and 550 °C films with a 1 : 1 ratio of Ti : As, consistent with the composition TiAs, were deposited. Powder XRD showed that all of the films were crystalline and consistent with the formation of TiAs. Both nitrogen and carbon contamination of the films were negligible.
