In-situ experimental approach to the study of atomic layer deposition with atomic force microscope, X-ray photoelectron and X-ray absorption spectroscopy — •Massimo Tallarida, Konstantin Karavaev, Krzysztof Kolanek, and Dieter Schmeisser — Brandenburgische Technische Universität, LS Angewandte Physik-Sensorik, Konrad-Wachsmann-Allee, 17, 03046, Cottbus, Germany

We describe our experimental approach to the investigation of atomic layer deposition (ALD). ALD is a powerful deposition technique for growing conformal thin films of composite materials with atomically accurate thickness on large area [1]. Despite the enormous industrial interest growing around ALD, its fundamental properties were not yet properly studied. We developed an ALD reactor for the in-situ investigations using XPS, XAS and AFM as experimental techniques. We studied the chemical-physical properties of the growing thin films after each deposition cycle. Here, we illustrate the recent results concerning the ALD of HfO2 obtained using different Hf-precursors on various substrates [2]. We show how the in-situ investigations could deliver an important insight into the fundamental characteristics of ALD and how these information could be used to modify and optimize the deposition parameters.
