Effects of Pretreatments on Deposition Rate of Films in Aerosol Deposition Method
In the aerosol deposition method (ADM), we investigated an influence of pre-treatments for barium titanate powders as raw material on the deposition rate of thick films. By sieving and drying the powder, deposition rate of the films fabricated by ADM was effectively enhanced. On the other hand, heating the powders at 400-800°C, the resulting powders caused low deposition rate of the films. When a planetary milling was performed prior to charge aerosol chamber, the deposition rate of the films was four times higher than that in deposition using the powder without milling. By changing the milling rotation rate, we control size of agglomerated particles consisting of powders, which results in the control of deposition rate of the films.
