Abstract

We investigated effects of postdeposition heat treatment (HT) on the properties of plasma polymer films deposited by plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition using a mixture of decahydronaphthalene and tetraethyl orthosilicate as the precursors, which were referred to as plasma-polymerized decahydronaphthalene:tetraethyl orthosilicate (PPDHN:TEOS) films. HTs at 350, 450, and 500 °C decreased the relative dielectric constant k of the PPDHN:TEOS films from 3.16, the k value of the as-deposited film, to 2.82, 2.72, and 3.02, respectively. The change of k value as a function of HT temperature was correlated with the change of Fourier transform infrared absorption peaks of O–H, C = O, and Si-related groups. As the HT temperature increased, the thermal stability of the PPDHN:TEOS film increased. PPDHN:TEOS films, as-deposited or heat treated, showed leakage current density in the order of 10−7 A/cm2 at 1 MV/cm.
