Paper Title:
Silicide Formation Reactions in a-Si/Co Multilayered Samples
  Abstract

Solid state reactions between amorpous Si and crystalline Co have been investigated by synchrotron radiation at Bessy (Berlin, Germany). The multilayered samples (with 10 periods of a-Si(15 nm)/Co(15 nm) layers) were produced by magnetron sputtering and isothermally heat treated at temperatures between 523 and 593 K. From the time evolution of the XRD spectra first the growth rate of the CoSi phase as well as the decay rate of the Co layer we determined (at 523 and 543 K). The kinetics were described by a power law; tk, and for the growth of CoSi k=0.65 while for the loss of the Co the k=0.77 was obtained, respectively. At higher temperatures (at 573 and 593 K) the formation and growth of the Co2Si layer, at the expense of the Co and already existing CoSi layers, was observed with exponents of about 1 for all the above kinetics. These results, together with the results of resistance kinetics measurements, in similar multilayered as well as bi-layered samples at similar temperatures, providing similar exponents will be presented. Possibility of the interface reaction control and/or the effect of the diffusion asymmetry (which was recently published for the interpretation of solid state reactions with non-parabolic kinetics on the nanoscale) will be discussed.
