Onset Conditions for Gas Phase Reaction and Nucleation in the CVD of Transition Metal Oxides

Abstract

A combined experimental/theoretical study is presented of the onset conditions for gas phase reaction and particle nucleation in hot substrate/cold gas CVD of transition metal oxides. Homogeneous reaction onset conditions are predicted using a simple high activation energy reacting gas film theory. Experimental tests of the basic theory are underway using an axisymmetric impinging jet CVD reactor. No “vapor phase ignition” has yet been observed in the TiCl4/O2 system under accessible operating conditions (below substrate temperature Tw=1700 K) and further experiments are planned using more reactive feed materials. The goal of this research is to provide CVD reactor design and operation guidelines for achieving acceptable deposit microstructures at the maximum deposition rate while simultaneously avoiding homogeneous reaction/nucleation and diffusional limitations.
