    • Abstract


      Sputter deposition is currently being widely used in the microelectronics industry for the production of silicon integrated circuits. Recently interest has been focused on sputter deposition as a new materials processing technique. The highly energetic sputtered atoms enhance crystal growth and/or sintering during film growth. This results in lowering of the growth temperature of high temperature materials including cubic diamonds. Single crystals of complex ceramics materials could be prepared by sputter deposition through epitaxial growth process. Atomically controlled deposition using multi-target sputter enables to make man-made superlattice including high-TC superconductors of layered perovskite. At present sputter deposition is one of key materials technologies for the coming century.
