Au/NiCr/Ta multi-layered metallic films were deposited on Al2O3 substrate by magnetron sputtering at different substrate temperature. The effect of substrate temperature on magnetron sputtering Au/NiCr/Ta films in crystal orientation, residual stress and resistivity was investigated. The all magnetron sputtering films were highly textured with dominant Au-(111) orientation or a mixture of Au-(111) and Au-(200) orientation. The residual stress in magnetron sputtering films at different substrate temperature was tensile stress with 155MPa-400MPa. A smallest resistivity of 3.6µΩ.cm was obtained for Au/NiCr/Ta multi-layered metallic films at substrate temperature 180°C. The experiment results reveal that the resistivity increased with the increase of the residual stress of metallic films.
