Abstract

Thin tantalum films on the order of 5500 A, sputtered onto soda lime glass substrates in an argon atmosphere, were evaluated for an open-ended continuous in-line machine system and a bell jar system for various modes of deposition. All analyses were conducted before and after a 90-minute boiling HCl treatment. It has been found that an unidentifiable crystalline phase is the predominant structure of the tantalum thin films in this investigation.
