  • From V. B. Aleskovskii's “Framework” Hypothesis to the Method of
           Molecular Layering/Atomic Layer Deposition 
    • Authors: Anatolii A. Malygin; Victor E. Drozd, Anatolii A. Malkov, Vladimir M. Smirnov
      Pages: 216 - 240
      Abstract: This essay is dedicated to the history of creation and development of the molecular layering technique (ML) which, in the modern community of non-Russian scientists, is commonly referred to as atomic layer deposition (ALD). Basic research in the field of chemical transformations of solid surfaces using the ML method in the light of the “framework” hypothesis proposed by V. B. Aleskovskii in 1952 is discussed. A number of questions raised by international scientists including those involved in the Virtual Project on the History of ALD (VPHA, 2013), and scientists from conferences in Helsinki (Finland, May 2014.), Kyoto (Japan, June 2014), and personal communications amongst peers are addressed. For the first time in English, this article provides information about V. B. Aleskovskii and S. I. Kol'tsov who are closely associated with development of the ML technique in the Soviet Union. This paper also informs the scientific community about research groups currently engaged in ML research in Russia and introduces the scientific school of “Chemistry of highly organized substances”, founded and supervised by V. B. Aleskovskii.The history of creation and development of ALD, which has been known in the USSR-Russia as molecular layering technique (ML), is described. The “framework” hypothesis and its connection with principles of the method ML, provides information about the ML groups in Russia and their scientific results from the 1960s to the present time.

  • CVD Growth of MoS2-based Two-dimensional Materials
    • Authors: H. F. Liu; S. L. Wong, D. Z. Chi
      Pages: 241 - 259
      Abstract: The ‘self-limiting’ character of graphene growth on the surface of metals such as Ni and Cu makes CVD the natural choice for growing large-area and continuous graphene films. Beyond graphene, absence of the self-limiting property results in a challenge to achieving large-area, high-quality two-dimensional (2D) crystals by CVD. Recent studies of structural, optical, and electrical properties of MoS2-based atomic layers grown by CVD are reviewed, concluding that thermal vapor deposition will outperform thermal vapor sulfurization in producing the required materials. Whether gaseous sources will replace the now dominant solid sources in direct deposition methods is an open issue. The latest progression in various CVD techniques used in MoS2 growth and their resultant products are discussed and compared.Recent studies of MoS2-based atomic layers grown by CVD are reviewed, suggesting that TVD will outperform TVS towards large-area, high-quality, 2D-MoS2. Whether gaseous sources will replace the now dominant solid sources in direct deposition is still an open issue. The latest progression in CVD for 2D-MoS2 nanosheets is discussed towards elucidating and helping better define future process optimizations.

  • Quantitative Measurement of Fiber Pull-out by Laser Scanning Confocal
    • Authors: Andreas Pfrang; Thomas Schimmel
      Pages: 260 - 262
      Abstract: Laser scanning confocal microscopy is demonstrated as a new method to quantitatively determine fiber pull-out length. Fracture surfaces of carbon/carbon composites – polyacrylonitrile (PAN)-based carbon fibers infiltrated with pyrolytic carbon – are investigated to measure the three-dimensional surface topography and thereby the distribution of fiber pull-out length of carbon fibers.

  • Possible High Efficiency Platform for Biosensors Based on Optimum Physical
           Chemistry of Carbon Nanotubes 
    • Authors: Amin Termeh Yousefi; Hirofumi Tanaka, Samira Bagheri, Nahrizul Adib Kadri, Shoichiro Ikeda, Mohamad Rusop Mahmood, Mikio Miyake
      Pages: 263 - 266
      Abstract: Carbon nanotube (CNT)-based electrochemical biosensors are used to determine the concentration of analytes by measuring mass, heat, or oxygen. CNTs, as an immobilizing platform of biomaterials, play an important role in enhancing the electron transfer mechanism of a biosensor. The large surface area and optimum aspect ratio (length to thickness) of CNTs maximize the amount of immobilized biomaterials on the surface. In this study, various aspect ratios of CNTs are reported, based on the alteration of growth mechanisms using CVD. The growth-dependent and -independent parameters of the CNT arrays are studied as functions of the synthesis method.Full Paper: Different aspect ratios of CNTs are reported based on the alteration of growth temperature which may be a useful method of increasing the electron-relaying capacity of enzymatic biosensors due to the presence of the insulating, bulky enzyme molecules. Nanotubes are grown perpendicular to the surface of the silicon substrate in different aspect ratios according to the applied growth temperatures.

  • Photo-oxidation of Polymers Synthesized by Plasma and Initiated CVD 
    • Authors: Salmaan H. Baxamusa; Aravind Suresh, Paul Ehrmann, Ted Laurence, Jiries Hanania, Jeff Hayes, Stephen Harley, Daniel D. Burkey
      Pages: 267 - 274
      Abstract: Plasma polymers are often limited by their susceptibility to spontaneous and photo-oxidation. We show that the unusual photoluminescence (PL) behavior of a plasma polymer of trans-2-butene is correlated with its PL strength. These photo-processes occur under blue light illumination (λ = 405 nm), distinguishing them from traditional ultraviolet degradation of polymers. These photo-active defects are likely formed during the plasma deposition process, and we show that a polymer synthesized using initiated (i)CVD, a non-plasma method, has 1000× lower PL signal and enhanced photo-stability. Non-plasma methods, such as iCVD, may therefore be a route to overcoming material aging issues that limit the adoption of plasma polymers.The photo-oxidative stability of hydrocarbon polymers deposited via plasma and iCVD is compared. The plasma polymer has an unusually strong and broad PL emission when excited with blue light. The strength of the PL is correlated with its rate of photo-oxidation under blue light illumination. The iCVD polymer has 1000× weaker PL signal and is far more photo-stable.

  • OMCVD Gold Nanoparticles Covalently Attached to Polystyrene for Biosensing
    • Authors: Sivayini Kandeepan; Joseph A. Paquette, Joe B. Gilroy, Silvia Mittler
      Pages: 275 - 280
      Abstract: Remarkable developments and successes are witnessed in the fabrication and implementation of optical sensors based on localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) for the investigation of chemical and biological material quantities. We report on the reproducible fabrication of chemically stable surface immobilized AuNPs grown via organometallic chemical vapor deposition (OMCVD) on a polymer substrate, namely polystyrene (PS). Oxygen plasma-treated and UV ozone-treated PS samples depict enhanced amounts of polar -OH groups allowing for nucleation and growth of AuNPs. The optimum plasma treatment conditions, the largest shifts in the LSPR curves, and the bulk sensitivity of the OMCVD-grown AuNPs are discussed.OMCVD growth at low temperature of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) is demonstrated on PS substrates. The PS is oxygen plasma- or UV ozone-treated to increase the number of surface -OH groups for nucleation and growth. The SEM image depicts a typical AuNP distribution, size and location, on a PS substrate with enhanced -OH functionalities. A higher FOM for bulk sensing was achieved.

  • A Facile Route to Thin Films of Zinc Carbodiimide Using Aerosol-assisted
    • Authors: Karl M. Kaye; William Grantham, Geoffrey Hyett
      Pages: 281 - 287
      Abstract: There has been a resurgence of interest in metal carbodiimides in recent years and in this paper we present a route to the synthesis of one of these phases, zinc carbodiimide, previously known as zinc cyanamide, in the form of a sub-micrometer thin film, using aerosol-assisted (AA)CVD from a solution of zinc acetate and urea in methanol, with the carbodiimide ion being formed from the decomposition of the urea molecule. Thin film synthesis is achieved over a deposition temperature range 375 − 500 °C, with a minimum ratio of urea to zinc acetate of 2:1 and a maximum of 5:1 established as viable for film formation. This work presents the first example of the synthesis of a ZnNCN thin film, or indeed any metal carbodiimide thin film, using a CVD technique.The concerted aerosol-assisted CVD reaction of urea and zinc acetate in methanol enables the formation of zinc carbodiimide thin films. This can be achieved over a substrate temperature range of 375 to 500 °C with a minimum excess of 2 mol eq. of urea needed for pure ZnNCN, and an excess of up to 5 mol eq. tested.

  • Uniform Coating of Microparticles using CVD Polymerization 
    • Authors: Yu Liang; Jacob H. Jordahl, Hao Ding, Xiaopei Deng, Joerg Lahann
      Pages: 288 - 293
      Abstract: A modified fluidized bed reactor is developed to homogenously coat micrometer-sized particles with reactive polymer films using CVD. This technique is found to be rapid (∼30 min per batch) and scalable (up to 1 g particles), and can create homogenous coatings on microparticles down to 10 μm in diameter. By tuning critical variables, such as working pressure and the carrier gas flow rate, full coverage of a reactive polymer film can be realized. Janus particles are synthesized and can be visualized via fluorescence microscopy.A custom-designed fluidized bed reactor is attached to the outlet of a CVD polymerization system, thereby imparting chemical functionality on the surface of microparticles. Functional polymer films are shown to fully coat the 3D surface of particles. This technique, in concert with metal deposition, produces Janus particles. These coated particles have a wide range of potential uses in biotechnology.

  • PECVD of Hematite Nanoblades and Nanocolumns: Synthesis, Characterization,
           and Growth Model 
    • Authors: Giorgio Carraro; Alberto Gasparotto, Chiara Maccato, Elza Bontempi, Davide Barreca
      Pages: 294 - 299
      Abstract: Fe2O3 nanostructures are fabricated on Si(100) and SiO2 by plasma enhanced (PE)CVD from a FeIII β-diketonate precursor. Depositions are carried out in Ar-O2 plasmas, devoting particular attention to the influence of growth temperature (from 60 to 400 °C) on material chemico-physical properties. Remarkably, high purity, single-phase α-Fe2O3 nanostructures are obtained at temperatures as low as 60 °C. Furthermore, the deposit nano-organization can be tuned from -oriented 2D nanoblade arrays to denser nanocolumns upon increasing the deposition temperature. A possible growth model is proposed to account for the observed structural/morphological features and light absorption properties of the target materials.The effect of growth temperature (60–400 °C) on the structure, morphology, and optical properties of iron(III) oxide nanosystems fabricated by PECVD starting from Fe(dpm)3 is reported. The obtaining of single-phase α-Fe2O3 nanoblade/columnar arrays with tailored structural and optical properties is successfully demonstrated, proposing a suitable growth model accounting for the presented results.

  • Hybrid Synergic Methodology to Prepare ALD Honey-Comb Anatase Films
    • Authors: Francesca Visentin; Naida El Habra, Monica Favaro, Simone Battiston, Rosalba Gerbasi, Laura Crociani, Alessandro Galenda
      Pages: 300 - 306
      Abstract: Macroporous inorganic structures with high surface-to-volume ratio have been recognized as a centre of interest in many fields. Here, attention is focused on a hybrid synergic methodology to prepare honey-comb (HC) anatase TiO2 films with increased specific surface area. The breath figures (BFs) method is exploited to produce HC polystyrene (PS) templates and atomic layer deposition (ALD) is used to conformally cover them with a TiO2 coating. Different approaches are tested to preserve the HC-TiO2 structure during the conversion of the hybrid organic/inorganic materials into crystalline anatase films. Best results are obtained operating with ALD at 180 °C on pre-UV cross-linked substrates.A hybrid synergic methodology to prepare honey–comb (HC) anatase TiO2 films with increased specific surface area is presented. The breath figures method is used to produce HC polystyrene templates and atomic layer deposition is used to conformally cover them with a TiO2 coating. Different approaches are tested to preserve the HC-TiO2 structure during the conversion of the hybrid organic/inorganic materials into HC-crystalline anatase films.

      Abstract: Amorphous hydrogenated silicon oxycarbide (a-SiCO:H) thin films are produced by remote microwave hydrogen plasma CVD using 1,1,3,3-tetramethyldisiloxane precursor. The effect of substrate temperature (TS) on the chemical structure and some properties of resulting a-SiCO:H films is reported. The examination performed by infrared spectroscopy revealed that the increase in TS involves the elimination of organic moieties from the film and its transformation from polymer-like to ceramic-like high-crosslink-density material. Due to their small surface roughness, high density, and good optical transparency, the a-SiCO:H films seem to be useful coatings for optical and electronic devices.The a-SiCO:H films produced by the remote hydrogen plasma CVD from a tetramethyldisiloxane precursor at different substrate temperature (TS = 30–350 °C) are examined in terms of their growth kinetics, surface morphology, density, refractive index, optical absorption coefficient, optical bandgap, and photoluminescence. The relationships between the structural parameters of the films (controlled by TS) and their properties were determined. Their small surface roughness, high density, and good optical transparency make them seem to be useful coatings for optical devices.

      Pages: 319 - 326
      Abstract: A systematic study into the MOCVD of V-O films using the vanadyl-acetylacetonate [VO(acac)2] precursor is carried out. The films are prepared via low pressure MOCVD on Si(001) substrates. The nature and quality of films are examined by varying operational parameters, e.g., deposition temperature, precursor vaporization rate, and flow of oxygen reacting gas. X-ray diffraction data point to the formation of crystalline films in the range 200−550 °C. Outside of this temperature ranges amorphous phases were obtained. Field-emission scanning electron microscope (FESEM) images indicate very homogeneous surfaces with grain shape and dimensions depending on operational conditions. Energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) analyses point to the absence of any C contamination.A systematic study is carried out into the MOCVD of V-O films using the vanadyl-acetylacetonate precursor on a Si(001) substrate. XRD data point to the formation of crystalline films in the range 200–550 °C, with different phases forming within the investigated range.

  • CVD Deposited Titania Thin Films for Gas Sensors with Improved Operating
    • Authors: Marina V. Baryshnikova; Leonid A. Filatov, Andrey S. Petrov, Sergey E. Alexandrov
      Pages: 327 - 333
      Abstract: This paper describes the results of experimental evaluation of titanium dioxide thin films formed by CVD as active layers in semiconductor, resistive sensors for detection of ethanol vapors. TiO2 layers with a thickness of 90 nm are formed by CVD in the TTIP-O2-O3-Ar reaction system. Sensors manufactured with titania films formed under all the deposition conditions studied exhibit good electrical response to the ethanol vapors, with quick response-recovery characteristics in the temperature range 170–300 °C. Sensor performance is determined by the relative amount of anatase phase and grain size in the films. The response value (Rair/Rethanol) of the sample with the highest degree of crystallinity reached 37 at an operating temperature of 200 °C.An experimental evaluation of TiO2 thin films formed by CVD as active layers in semiconductor, resistive sensors for detection of ethanol vapors. Sensors produced on the basis of titania films containing the highest amount of anatase phase and with the lowest grain size (a typical SEM image is shown) are characterized by highest values of response and shortest response-recovery times.

    • Authors: Sarah Karle; Van-Son Dang, Marina Prenzel, Detlef Rogalla, Hans-Werner Becker, Anjana Devi
      Pages: 335 - 342
      Abstract: Thin films of Y2O3 are deposited on Si(100) and Al2O3 (0001) substrates via metal-organic (MO)CVD for the first time using two closely related yttrium tris-amidinate compounds as precursors in the presence of oxygen in the temperature range 400–700 °C. The structural, morphological, and compositional features of the films are investigated in detail. At deposition temperatures of 500 °C and higher both the precursors yield polycrystalline Y2O3 thin films in the cubic phase. The compositional analysis revealed the formation of nearly stoichiometric Y2O3. The optical band gaps are estimated using UV-Vis spectroscopy. Preliminary electrical measurements are performed in the form of a metal oxide semiconductor (MOS) structure of Al/Y2O3/p-Si/Ag. Leakage currents and dielectric constants are also determined.Y2O3 thin films are grown by MOCVD at 400–700 °C using yttrium amidinate presursors in the presence of oxygen. The films, which are polycrystalline in case of deposition temperatures > 400 °C, are dense and exhibit good purity and homogeneity.

  • A Process-Structure Investigation of Aluminum Oxide and Oxycarbide Thin
           Films prepared by Direct Liquid Injection CVD of Dimethylaluminum
           Isopropoxide (DMAI) 
    • Authors: Loïc Baggetto; Cédric Charvillat, Jérôme Esvan, Yannick Thébault, Diane Samélor, Hugues Vergnes, Brigitte Caussat, Alain Gleizes, Constantin Vahlas
      Pages: 343 - 351
      Abstract: We present the direct liquid injection CVD of aluminum oxide and oxycarbide thin films using dimethylaluminum isopropoxide at high process temperature (500–700 °C) with the addition of O2 gas, and at low temperature (150–300 °C) with the addition of H2O vapor. Very smooth films with typical roughness values lower than 2 nm are obtained. The thin films are composed of an amorphous material. The composition evolves as a function of temperature from that of a partial hydroxide to a stoichiometric oxide at low deposition temperature (150–300 °C), and from that of a stoichiometric oxide to a mixture of an oxide with an (oxy) carbide at higher temperature (500–700 °C).The DLI CVD of aluminum oxide and oxycarbide thin films using dimethylaluminum isopropoxide at high process temperature with O2 gas and at low temperature with H2O vapor is presented. Tuning the process conditions (temperature, co-reactant) allows to control the composition and film properties to obtain partially hydroxylated alumina, stoichiometric alumina or oxycarbide materials.

  • Ozone-Based Atomic Layer Deposition of Gd2O3 from
           Tris(isopropyl-cyclopentadienyl)gadolinium: Growth Characteristics and
           Surface Chemistry
    • Authors: Jeong Hwan Han; Annelies Delabie, Alexis Franquet, Thierry Conard, Sven Van Elshocht, Christoph Adelmann
      Pages: 352 - 359
      Abstract: The atomic layer deposition (ALD) of Gd2O3 from tris(isopropyl-cyclopentadienyl) gadolinium (Gd(iPrCp)3) and O3 is studied as a function of the O2/N2 ratio used to generate O3. ALD using O3 with low N2 content leads to the formation of a hydroxyl-terminated surface after combustion reactions during O3 exposure followed by proton transfer and ligand release during the Gd(iPrCp)3 half cycle. This condition leads to the presence of parasitic chemical vapor deposition (CVD) due to the hygroscopicity of Gd2O3. By contrast, long O3 pulses with high N2 content lead to the dehydroxylation of the surface and to the suppression of both the proton transfer during the Gd(iPrCp)3 half cycle as well as the parasitic CVD reactions.The atomic layer deposition of Gd2O3 from Gd(iPrCp)3 and O3 is studied using in situ quadrupole mass spectrometry. O3 with low N2 content leads to the formation of a hydroxyl–terminated surface after combustion reactions with O3 followed by proton transfer and ligand release during Gd(iPrCp)3 chemisorption. By contrast, O3 with high N2 content leads to the dehydroxylation of the surface and the suppression of the proton transfer.

      Abstract: Mesoporous nanostructures of tin(IV) oxide microballs are synthesized, using a single source precursor [Sn (OAc)(dmae)]2 (where OAc = Acetato and dmae = dimethylaminoethanolato). The as-prepared microballs are characterized using X-ray diffraction, field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), Fourier transform infrared and UV-vis spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and impedance spectroscopy. The focused ion beam (FIB) images of the exterior and interior surfaces of the microballs disclosed the presence of porous structures with mesopore of sizes ranging from 56-66 nm and 8.0 to 160 nm, respectively. The microballs exhibit high BET and Langmuir surface areas of 136 and 191.6 m2 g−1, respectively, and show capacities >600 mAhg−1 over 60 cycles, as compared with unmodified tin oxide-based nanomaterials which show capacity < 500 mAh g−1 after 50 cycles.Mesoporous Sn (IV) oxide nanostructures with a Langmuir surface area of 191 m2 g−1 and mesopore size range from 56 to 66 nm and 8 to 160 nm in exterior and interior surfaces, respectively, are prepared by electric–field-directed aerosol-assisted CVD and tested for highly reversible cycling stability for application in lithium ion batteries.

      Abstract: The growth of vanadium dioxide is carried out using chemical vapor deposition with N2 flow rates of 1, 1.4 and 2.2 L min−1 through the vanadium precursor bubbler. The presence of both monoclinic and metastable vanadium dioxide phases with the co-existence of nanocrystallites and outgrowths on the coating surface is observed for the 1 L min−1. Additionally, the electrochemical performance for this sample is enhanced and the specific discharge capacity was the highest presenting capacitance retention of 97% after 500 scans. Finally, it is found that the diffusion of Li+ through the cathode/electrolyte interface is easier enhancing its capacitive performance.Atmospheric pressure chemical vapor deposition of vanadium dioxide using different N2 flow rates through the vanadium precursor bubbler is performed. The lowest flow rate exhibits the presence of both monoclinic and metastable phases and consequently the co–existence of both nanocrystallites and outgrowths on the coating suface. It presents an enhanced electrochemical performance with a discharge specific capacity of 425 mAh g−1 and a capacitance retention after 500 scans.

  • Numerical Modeling of the Droplet Vaporization for Design and Operation of
           Liquid-pulsed CVD 
    • Authors: Raphaël Boichot; Susan Krumdieck
      Pages: 375 - 384
      Abstract: This article presents an approach for modeling the vaporization of droplets of solvent and precursor mixture under vacuum in the pulsed-pressure (pp) CVD process. The pulsed, direct liquid injection apparatus with ultrasonic atomizer is demonstrated as a controllable and reliable alternative to the bubbler and carrier gas system. The numerical modeling solves mass, heat, and momentum continuity equations on liquid droplets, and is intended to evaluate the relative roles of the physical chemistry properties and reactor parameters in the fast vaporization of droplets. The sensitivity analysis proposed here shows that the vaporization time into the pulsed-liquid CVD system is mainly dependent on the heating available in the flash evaporation zone, then on the thermodynamic properties of the liquid solution.The pulsed pressure CVD process using a liquid precursor droplet spray is assessed by numerical simulation. The main parameters impacting the vaporization time of the liquid droplet cloud are the enthalpies of vaporization and vapor pressures of the compounds in the mixture, the initial temperature and size of the droplets, and the temperature of the reactor wall.
