Abstract

Quantitative measurement of the adhesion strength of thin film metallizations has been achieved by a novel technique employing electrostatic forces to generate delaminating stresses. This technique has been used in testing the adhesion of Al-Cu, Cu, and Al multilayer films deposited on Si. Micro-blister-type failure is revealed by scanning electron microscopy. The delamination process and the geometry of the blister are discussed. The measured adhesion data fit a Weibull distribution function.
