Copper oxide films have been successfully deposited onto glass, fused quartz and Si(100) substrates by superimposed high power impulse (HIPIMS) and DC reactive magnetron sputtering. The deposition rate, adhesion, structure, wettability and optical properties of the obtained films were compared with those of CuO films deposited by conventional DC sputtering. X-ray diffraction analysis revealed that nanocrystallite size, single phase cupric oxide thin films with monoclinic structure were formed in all deposition modes. However, superimposing the direct current during off-time of HiPIMS pulsing allowed formation of denser film with smooth surface and good optical properties.
