Effect of NH3 Atmosphere on Preparation of Al2O3-AlN Composite Film by Laser CVD
Al2O3-AlN composite film was first prepared by laser chemical vapor deposition (laser CVD) using aluminum acetylacetonate (Al(acac)3) and ammonia (NH3) as source materials. The effects of NH3 on the crystal phase, composition and microstructure were investigated. The crystal phase changed from α-Al2O3 to AlN gradually with increasing the mole ratio of NH3 to Ar. Al2O3-AlN composite film was obtained at NH3/Ar ratio ranged from 0.09 to 0.16 (Tdep = 862–887 K), and AlN granular grains were embedded in between α-Al2O3 polyhedral grains.
