Abstract

The thermomechanical behavior is investigated of SiCN-encapsulated blanket Physical Vapor Deposited (PVD) and Electrochemically Deposited (ECD) Cu films. At lower ECD Cu film thicknesses an anomalous shape and a tail of the stress-temperature curve are observed, which are not caused by impurities at the interfaces, but are correlated to highly textured microstructure. Repeated thermal cycling of up to 400 °C does not markedly change the texture of the films, but a significant texture change takes place with increasing ECD Cu thickness. Thermal cycling induces grain growth for thicker films only. Impurity content and distribution in the PVD films do not change due to cycling.
