Silicon films were deposited on a fluororesin surface. The process was divided into two steps: surface modification process and silicon CVD onto the modified parts. In the modification process, SiH4 and B(CH3)3 mixed gases were used with ArF excimer laser. Fluorine atoms of the surface were pulled out by boron atoms which were photo—dissociated from B(CH3)3 and were replaced with silicon atoms released from SiH4. In the CVD process, SiH4 gas was used with high—density excited ArF excimer laser. Silicon films were deposited onto the nuclei by photodecomposition of SiH4.
Chemical compositions of the modified layers and the deposited parts were inspected by XPS analysis. 1000 Å thickness of the deposited silicon films was confirmed by the surface roughness interference–meter.
