Silica and Alumina Thin Films Grown by Liquid Phase Deposition


Article Preview

This work demonstrates the condition optimization during liquid phase deposition (LPD) of SiO2/GaAs films. LPD method is further applied to form Al2O3 films on semiconductors with poison-free materials. Proceeding at room temperature with inexpensive equipment, LPD of silica and alumina films is potentially serviceable in microelectronics and related spheres.
