Effects of Acetylene on Deposition Rate of Stainless Steels Using Thermal Chemical Vapor Deposition
A hot filament thermal chemical vapor deposition (CVD) reactor was used to deposit solid thin films on stainless steel 316 (SS 316) and stainless steel 201 (SS 201) substrates at different flow rates of acetylene (C2H2) gas. The variation of thin film deposition rate with the variation of gas flow rate has been investigated experimentally. During experiments are conducted under gas flow rate (1-5) lit/min gas flow rate, duration of deposition (10-60 min), pressure (0.2-1 bar), average surface roughness (0.3-1.05) µm and temperature 800 °C considered. Experimental results show that deposition rate on SS 316 and SS 201 increases with the increase in gas flow rate. The deposition rate also shows increasing trend with pressure and duration of deposition. Under the above mentioned experimental conditions deposition is found to be maximum of SS-316 compared to SS-201. In relation to roughness the maximum deposition is found at 0.5 microns but comparing the both materials -316 and-201 highest of deposition rate is obtained from SS-316.
